Some considerations when measuring ring sizes:

Since the wider a ring is, the tighter it will fit, please note that your sizes must be measured with a ring sizer (a jeweler's wedding band gauge) of the same width as the rings of your choice.

The best size is usually the ring that fits snugly and gives a little resistance when you take it off. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

A dramatic sundown behind the waves of Gichigami


These wedding rings, which conjure up echoes of old Anishinaabe spirit memories that are still very much alive today, distinguish themselves by their organic, wavy shape and feature – on the outsides as well as on the insides - stylized images of the sun. The partially depicted sun designs on the outside suggests a dramatic sundown behind the waves of Gichi-ogimaa-gami, the great lake that today is known as Lake Superior.

The graphic sun designs and warm colors of the ring surfaces and interiors depict the great gift of heat and light from Gimishoomisinaan Giizis, the grandfather of all Life on earth as he rises each morning in the east to perform his ritual dance across the southern sky. The red gold of the sun inlay of the ring exteriors represents his warm glow coloring the Great Lake red as he sinks in the water at the end of each day.

I like to think the the subtle interplay of the waving outlines - suggesting lake’s waves, thus escaping a too rigid precision in the ring design - and the carefully assembled, exuberantly warm gold color of the inlaid sun – sinking with golden gleams amid the waves of Gichigami -, lend mysterious beauty and romance to these one-of-a-kind wedding rings...
