Some considerations when measuring ring sizes:
Professional sizing methods are more reliable and accurate than online or at-home methods. Professional sizing can be done at a local reputable jeweler.
It is important to take into account the width of your ring band as wider bands typically require a larger size to fit comfortably. It is therefore always best to be sized with a professional jeweler's ring sizer of the same width as the one you intend to purchase.
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.
Prayer carriers of messages and giving thanks
Migizi, the Bald Eagle, symbolizes courage and pre-knowledge and is therefore emblematic of leadership. The Anishinaabeg regard Migizi as a special messenger of GICHI-MANIDOO, the Great Spirit of the Universe, and his feathers are animated by his strength, courage, and great vision. To receive an eagle feather of the bald eagle or the golden eagle is considered a great honor because it recognizes achievement and great acts or deeds.
According to Anishinaabe Midewiwin tradition, the great Migizi (Eagle manidoo) as it swooped down from the Spirit World, left its imprint at the door of the Midewigaan (Lodge) where Makwa the bear sat – which is the entrance for the Mide people to enter their lodge. For this reason, Migizi is sometimes referred to as Ogimaa Migizi, the Eagle spirit of the Eastern Direction.
Migizi is also looked upon as the one who looks after the ni’inaa ikwewag (women of the Nation) and who insures GICHI-MANIDOO each morning that the women, who are the keepers of the Sacred Water Circle, honor this path with their asemaa (tobacco) in hand, singing their nibi waaboo (water song). Another eagle spirit called Omishoomis Giniw, the Golden Eagle Grandfather who is regarded as protector of Ziigwan, the spring time spirit, watches over all women, and particularly over women who are in new beginnings.
The feathers of both Eagle Grandfathers are being looked upon as anami`ewin mizhinaweg, prayer carriers of messages and giving thanks. Like the smoke of the sacred asemaa (tobacco) eagle feathers have the power to convey our thoughts and feelings and provide us with an opportunity to speak directly to the spirits with debwewin (a straight mind) and bekide’ewin (a pure heart); hence the title of the wedding ring set, "We Reach For The Sky."
The stylized feathers of sterling silver adorning the wedding rings symbolize the spiritual dimension of the age-old belief that the Anishinaabe Peoples have in GICHI-MANIDOO and in Omishoomisimaag (Grandfathers) Migizi and Giniw, winged emissaries of the Great Mystery and powerful mediators between the Earth and the Sky world. The brilliance and fire of the white diamond in the ladies' ring stands for the East, home of the Eagle Grandfathers, and the direction of sunrise and spring time and new beginnings.
