This completely original goat ring was hand carved in NYC. It is cast in recycled white bronze ( jeweler's bronze with silver added).
The horns are set to ride above your finger. It's one solid piece and will last for hundreds of years.
I used to milk a herd of goats on the mountain. We had Toggenburgs and Nubians. This ring is a Nubian. I find them sweeter and the milk fat content is richer. It makes better cheese in my opinion. Milking goats is wonderful even at 3 below zero.
The persimmon tree bark band is a cast of some bark I collected from my land in Tennessee. That tree gave wonderful fruit for many years. When it passed on I wanted to have a remembrance to share.
Specs : The goat is 20mm from ear to ear (just under an inch wide) From horn tip to nose 28.2 mm (just over a inch)
The band is 5.5mm wide (.23 inch) and 2.1 mm thick (.09 inches)
