We wanted to create a ring that would showcase a beautifully faceted deep red Garnet and so we thought what could be more perfect than our Arbutus bark imprint from Galiano Island. The Garnet has long been considered the symbol of love, inner fire and life force which pairs well with the meaning of the Arbutus tree.
About the imprint:
The Arbutus Tree sheds its papery bark and grows along the coast of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. They grow on the edge of the land near the ocean in rough and rocky conditions. They twist and turn so they can grow in many directions to reach the sunlight and each tree takes on its own unique shape. Their branches and leaves are tossed by the wild winds of the BC Coast but they stand strong and keep persevering to grow and become magnificent trees. It's for this reason that the Arbutus tree symbolizes strength, beauty and uniqueness.
We found this piece of Arbutus branch washed up and weathered on the beach on Galiano Island during our visit with friends. Its amazing past has left cracks in the branch so we could share the story and beauty with you.
The width of the band is 0.4 cm and the area around the stone is 1 cm in diameter. This ring would best be suited for sizes 5 to 9. Please let us know of your size in the note section at check out.
Please note - this item is handmade and the measurement may vary slightly.
The entire ring is Fine Silver (99% Silver)
