Every Fern Ring from the Wild is topped with a completely unique pounamu stone, hand-cut and polished, and set into a sturdy box setting. The ring band is tapered, with delicate and very detailed fern fronds carved over the shoulders of the band.
The pounamu is set between the two tips of the fern fronds. This ring was created to remind us of the beautiful wild spaces in Aotearoa NZ. The many different ferns and tree-ferns that are so typical of the NZ forest, green and shady spaces to treasure and find rest and peace within them. Each piece of pounamu is quite different, some may sit high on the ring, and others are cut to sit a little flatter. Some may be rectangular and others are cut more as a square. Each ring is listed as it's own variant, with the image of the actual ring and stone. Please ensure you have chosen the correct size and individual ring at the time of ordering. We can create these to order in sizes from XL down to XS, and orders will take approximately 2 weeks to hand-craft. The rings we have in stock are available here.
