Nightwanderer Ring

$120.00 - $140.00

The Nightwanderer was inspired from a trip to the Galapagos Islands where I spent two weeks traveling on a dark, dank pirate ship built in Denmark in 1901. (This ship, sadly, has since sunk.) In the evenings I lay on a box at the edge of the railing. If I slept too well I was likely to roll into the sea. Yet I didn’t need much sleep, so just hung my head over the edge as we traveled by night, watching the plankton spark, like tiny wandering stars at sea at the stern, as we plunged forward into the darkness. “Nightwanderers,” I thought.

‘Poesy’ or ‘posy’ rings received their name from the French word ‘poésy’ meaning ‘poetry,’ indicative of the poetic mottos with which they were engraved. They became popular in the 16th century through the 18th century as lovers’ gifts and wedding bands, but were also frequently given as a sign of friendship or loyalty.
