Jewellery with history

Handcrafted solid silver spoon ring made from an antique silver spoon designed by Georg Jensen*.

The spoon is part of Georg Jensen's 'Viking' range which has a striking beaded pattern and was made in 1928. The patten runs across the front on what would have been the handle of the spoon which is now the front of the ring. The original Danish hallmark on what is on the back of the shank of the ring. 

*Georg Jensen was instrumental in defining the character of the twentieth century Scandinavian Design by drawing on Danish traditions and infusing them with a progressive design rationale. He rejected the popular taste of the time for romantic and historicist ornamentation and ostentation, instead embracing the avant-garde Art Nouveau style with its simple organic forms and craft-based approach to production.

Origins

Spoon rings originated in 17th century England and were originally used as wedding rings. Servants could not afford to have wedding rings made of precious metals so they would steal the silverware from the manor houses and have them turned into wedding rings. For a time you could tell who the servants were working for by the crest on their rings.
