Vanitas ring with Bloodstone
A Vanitas painting is a particular style of still life that was immensely popular in the Netherlands beginning in the 17th century. The vast majority are pure still lifes, containing certain standard elements: symbols of arts and sciences (books, maps, and musical instruments), wealth and power (purses, jewelry, gold objects), and earthly pleasures (goblets, pipes, and playing cards); symbols of death or transience (skulls, clocks, burning candles, soap bubbles, and flowers); and, sometimes, symbols of resurrection and eternal life (usually ears of corn or sprigs of ivy or laurel). They were created to remind us that our vanity or material possessions and pursuits do not preclude us from death, which is inevitable.

Options to help you find your ring size
If you already have a ring at home that you wear on your chosen finger, measuring will be an easy process. We give you tips below about how your ring size can be measured. A trip to your local jeweller is the best way to get an accurate size. You can either take your own ring or try on a piece there. Make sure they provide you with a European, Japanese, US or UK/Australian ring size. See our ring size chart HERE .
We do offer a complimentary re-size with every order. (shipping fees not included)
We look forward to crafting your ring for you.
