White Horse and Crescent Moon Wide Silver Ring To fit size O 1/2 or 7 1/2
This unique silver ring was inspired by the Uffington White Horse - a place I love to visit. It is entirely handmade by me in my Oxfordshire studio and is forged from thick sterling silver. The stylised horse has been cut into the silver on one side of the ring and a crescent moon cut into the other, echoing the way the white horse is cut into the chalk at Uffington. The design is oxidised to bring out the details against the polished silver and then waxed with a microcrystalline wax to help protect the oxidised surface. Oxidisation is a surface treatment that can lighten with wear. Your ring will come gift boxed - perfect for giving.
This ring carries a full set of UK hallmarks and my maker's mark as issued by Goldsmith's of London - your guarantee of quality and silver purity.
Uffington is the oldest of all the white horses and was created in the Bronze Age. It's believed that the horse could have been cut by worshippers of the sun god Belinos or Belenus, who was associated with horses. He was sometimes depicted on horseback, and Bronze and Iron Age sun chariots were shown as being drawn by horses. This may be why the horse was cut into the chalk on the shallower slope at the top of the hill so that he could be seen from above by the god himself.
