Custom Vintage Style North star & Horse ring


A ring representing hope and strength, crafted from one woman’s story of divorce and single motherhood.  Each ring is handmade and you can choose the stones that hold the most symbolism for you. This ring takes approximately 3 weeks to produce and is not returnable given the level of customization involved.


divorce ring storyThe first in a line of jewelry inspired by the stories of real people, this gorgeous handmade and customizable signet ring has a North star on the front and a hand engraved horse on the underside. Reminiscent of Victorian jewelry in both style and symbolism, this is a perfect modern day piece for the person traversing life’s difficulties.

The two symbols on this ring are the future and past of one woman’s story – Cynthia went through a harrowing divorce and came out on the other side as a single mother of a little boy. The star, which symbolizes Cynthia’s hope for the future, holds her son’s birthstone. The horse is there to remind her of her tremendous strength; during her darkest days, a person had told her “You’re the horse I’d bet on.” The horse engraving is deliberately placed such that only the wearer will know it’s there and will always remember that strength.  Read Cynthia’s story in her own words:

The Story of a Divorce Ring

The stones in this ring are entirely custom – you choose which combination you’d like. Pictured is a citrine stone in the center and diamonds flanking on either side. The stones themselves can add symbolism to the piece, as Cynthia chose with a combination of her birthstone and her son’s.

With stones, price varies and is listed depending on whether or not you’re choosing a more expensive stone, or “other” stones, and in what combination (top stone only, all stones, or just side stones):
D = Diamond
S = Sapphire
R = Ruby
E = Emerald
“Other” = citrine, aquamarine, cubic zirconia, etc.

14k gold is available upon request and will be available more widely soon – please message me for more information.

Once you place your order, please message me with the stones you’d like and where in the ring. All stones, where possible, will be reclaimed/recycled. This ring takes approximately 2-3 weeks production time, and is not returnable given the level of customization involved.

Lastly, know that this ring is handmade from start to finish! I made the original ring, and then jewelers on the history Jeweler’s Row in Philadelphia did the stone setting and hand engraving. Your money goes to support the livelihood of many!
