Forget Me Nots and Ivy Wide With Rims, No Taper

Please select your ring size and choice of metal for pricing.

This wide band is composed of entertwining ivy and forgetmeknots with raised rims to protect the design. Both of the these plants have symbolic meaning going back to ancient times. Ivy, in Greek mythology was associated with the Dionysian cult of wine and worldly pleasures, unrestrained joy give or take a few hangovers. The Romans used a draft of ivy leaves boiled in wine as a "hair of the dog" remedy for hangover. Later, Ivy's tenacious ability to hang in there made it a fitting symbol for a strong relationship in medieval symbology. The flowers of the Forgetmeknot symbolize true love, a love not to be forgotten.

These bands are available in a narrow, organic looking format, and in a wider band with a frame of metal bars making a handsome men's ring entirely appropriate for women as well. Please note that both of these designs will accommodate a setting as well.
