The ring available via this listing is a prototype/sample cast in 10k yellow gold and set with a tiny 1.1mm black diamond in the center of a small blackened incised star. The band of the ring is approximately 3.9mm wide with an approximate depth of 1.9mm. It weighs 3.5 grams. The star measures approx. 3.5mm x 3mm. It is finished with a satin polish which over time, with wear, will burnish to a rubbed glow. It is a US size 3.75 (great as a pinky or midi ring).
Ah, the 5 pointed star! Such an ancient symbol. Whether representing the Golden Ratio, excellence, authority, power, or mystical realms, the star is ubiquitous.
I first conceived of this little ring after the death of the incomparable genius David Bowie. Like many of my peers, I spent my teenage (and adult) years listening to his music and taking great inspiration and comfort from this incredible man and his work. Black Star his goodbye opus was in my head and the Black Star symbol was everywhere. I made the first Little Black Star ring as sort of a memorial ring to make myself feel better about his being gone.
As time passed I decided to make more of them. Now I think of these rings less as symbols of mourning and more as symbols of remembrance, eternity, light in darkness, balance, and perfection.
Whatever the star symbol means to you, this is a lovely, easy-to-wear, everyday ring. It looks great on its own and also works well as part of a stack.
Star power-Bowie Forever!
