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.
Traditionally, Anishinaabe people have always been aware of an existence in the cosmos that vibrates with a sacred, creative energy. The sum of this cosmological energy, often called ‘‘Great Mystery,’’ finds its symbolic expression in Giizis the Sun, a sacred Sky Entity addressed to as NIMISHOOM, a ‘‘Grandfather,’’ representing life and time in a linear as well as cyclic sense. It is this sacred existence that Zhaawano sought to express in these multicolor gold overlay wedding rings, which he titled MIGIZI MIINAWAA GIIZIS DAANGINIDIWAG (“Touched By The Sun”, or, literally: “The Eagle and the Sun, They Touch Each Other”).
The two-tone wedding rings, which Zhaawano crafted by hand of 14K yellow over red gold and inlaid with a straight-lined, sleekly stylized eagle feather symbol of yellow gold, testify to the beauty of the overlay technique.
The design of the feather, whose interior seems to glow as if touched by the sun’s blessing, symbolizes the daily journey of Grandfather Sun, along with the flight of Migizi, the mighty bald eagle. The eagle feather is a metaphor for the sunlit path that you and your partner choose to walk together, a spiritual path that holds everything in the Universe sacred and teaches the importance of virtues like self-respect, respect for others, and caring for the future generations...For more reading please see Zhaawano's Art Blog.
