    • For this 2024 limited edition of our beloved Sovereign ring, we sourced a luscious olive-green tourmaline, cut in the same gumdrop-shape as our original. 

      Design Notes: Officially released in 2021, The Sovereign is our dream solitaire ring. Instead of prongs or a hollow-backed bezel holding the stone, we created a softened square cup of gold — solid underneath — that securely cradles the cushion-cut cabochon. Most rings of a similar design are fabricated (i.e. constructed from bent sheets of metal and solder), but for The Sovereign (and all of our rings) we use the lost wax casting method. This allows for more gold volume, substantial bezel walls, and a strength, density, and softness that is not possible otherwise.

      We also designed the band to seamlessly connect with the underside of the bezel, so it feels buttery as it glides over the knuckle. 

      Pairs well with the Essential Band or the Dominus Band (each sold separately).

      Gemstone Notes: Our green tourmaline cabochon is ethically sourced and custom-cut through a family-owned mine in Brazil. Tourmalines have natural inclusions and variations.

      Sizing Tips: With a substantial and solid gold bezel (four sides and a full gold base), The Sovereign carries its weight on top and will tend to lean side to side if a liberal size is chosen. Consider erring on the slightly "snug" side.

    "I’m having a hard time putting into  words what my ring means to me. My body image is a constant battle, and because of my illness, I find myself waiting for it to betray me. I don’t expect to rely on it, so I don’t show up for it either. You made me love my hands again. Like … a lot. I feel silly about how transformative this is for me, but it can’t be described as anything else."

    – A. Soloman

    “The ring is magnificent. Still wrapping my mind around it. Comforting, empowering, holding me in place. So incredibly beautiful.”

    "What a beautiful and gentle piece, and even softer than I thought it would be."

    – A. Herman

    "It's so difficult to do simple well, and you do it."

    – Jonathan L.

    “It feels so great on my finger. I love that it arrived polished and I get to add my patina with wear. Looking forward to that, but just pleased to finally be wearing it!”
