Merry Mishap Nightwanderer Ring
These sterling silver rings are a glimpse of the original steps in the making of our Poesy Collection. They are identical to the final rings minus the engravings on the inside of the band and the heavy oxidization. Oxidization can be easily added – please see our FAQs for a how-to.
These are heavily discounted, but otherwise the same excellent quality of our full priced jewelry. They are shipped in a muslin bag without the print and polishing cloth. These rings are extremely limited – if you love it, don’t hesitate! Merry Mishaps are not returnable.
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.
