This delicate ring is fabricated into a continuous loop using a solid gold casting of a red spruce needle that merges seamlessly with a simple, organically textured band.

NATURAL HISTORY

Picea rubens

The red spruce grows across Northeastern North America throughout Canada, New England, and as far south as Virginia at higher elevations. Red spruces are tolerant of shade and thin soil. They provide food to numerous wildlife species such as red squirrels and spruce grouse. The trees are harvested for lumber but also for use in musical instruments because of their resonant wood.

METAPHOR

The feeling of quiet in a stand of evergreen trees.

GIFTING

All Thicket rings have the option to be given as a gift since knowing someone's ring size and which finger they'd like to wear a given ring on can be tricky! Place your order for the ring choosing the "give as a gift" option in the size menu and you'll receive a beautiful cardstock card specifying the gifted piece, along with an adjustable ring sizer.

Care

Thicket jewelry is meant to be worn and loved but it's always advisable to remove jewelry before exercising, swimming and using harsh chemicals such as cleaning solutions. If you use your hands for work or for other pursuits like gardening or cooking, it's also a good idea to remove rings and bracelets. (And if the piece includes a set diamond you will definitely want to take it off for any activity where it may experience any impacts!)

You can clean your jewelry at home with a soft jewelry cloth or with a gentle soap and a soft toothbrush. If your piece includes oxidized sterling silver avoid vigorous polishing to preserve the darkened finish.

If your piece is set with a diamond it is important to regularly inspect it to be sure the diamond is secure and that there is no movement of the stone in the setting.
