The elusive, secretive lynx can be found living deep in the most remote wildernesses of Europe, Northern Asia and North America. Unsurprisingly, this powerful and mysterious creature has a prominent role in Celtic, Slavic, Norse, and North American folklore and is known in some Native American traditions as the 'keeper of secrets'. The lynx also has a mythical reputation for seeing through falsehood and discovering the truth. This is thought to have inspired the “Academy of Lynxes", one of the world's oldest scientific societies.

This platinum plated, sterling silver lynx measures 2.4cm wide (a fraction under one inch). It weighs approximately 19.4g, and has eyes made from natural, gem-quality, feldspar cabochons. The lynx ring has been given a Hallmark from the Assay Office to prove that it is made of solid silver.

To create it I have utilized some of the most up-to-date technology alongside some of the oldest skills still used in jewellery and silversmithing. The original lynx was hand carved from wax before being digitally resized. It was cast in solid sterling silver, which was then reworked, for several hours, using traditional Goldsmiths' tools, to produce a very fine detail.

The silver lynx was given a part satin finished, part polished appearance. The lynx’s markings were then darkened with a grey UV enamel to emphasize the details.
This ring will be supplied in its own gift box.

Gold versions of this ring can be made on request.
