Evil eye of protection ring. Designed, cast and finished in NYC.
This is a redesigned re-release of the original 2009 piece. It is cast in pure reclaimed .925 Sterling Silver and hand oxidized to bring out the details. The 12mm eye was hand blown here in the US.
I couldn't let go of the idea that the original design was the best looking. The trouble was that setting the eye from the back just wasn't best. This two piece version places the eye then we laser weld the housing over the eye. It was a long process to figure this one out but now it's perfect.
The Specs :
The ring is 21mm wide across the top .8 inches. It's 16mm long top to bottom .6 inches. It sits 6mm up off the finger.
I can also set this ring with a green eye for you. You can see this green eye in my Porthole Pendant here.
Many Eastern countries have a tradition of using the eye to ward off bad intentions or evil spirited entities. In the west they appear in movies like Beast Master and The Lord of the Rings. There's something universally provocative about the eyeball imagery, and it seems that people are either really into them, or not at all. These rings get attention everywhere they go, especially on the subway; where I catch all the other riders sneaking a glance at The Evil Eye.
Please allow a few days processing because I "implant" the eyes and finish them when they're ordered.
