This cigar band ring has been casted from an actual antique cigar band die. It features a stunning Valkyrie that has been heavily engraved into the scroll work. In Norse mythology, a Valkyrie is a female figure that chooses those whom may die in battle, and those that may live. Valkyries have a love of heroes and are considered daughters of royalty. They're an emblem of fierceness.
Back in the Industrial Age, which began around the 18th century, jewelry was crafted from hubs/dies by die-striking the metal. An intricate, Victorian design was hand-carved into the metal. The material of the jewelry was then arduously die-struck into the hub until it produced a beautiful design. This antique method has been brought back to life, as the original antique cigar band hub will be used to create your ring. This ring is ONE OF A KIND.
RING SIZES: Sizes US4-16 are available. Quarter sizes also available. Sizes 11.00 and up are an additional fee; please inquire for an exact quote.
