This ring celebrates the Sugar Skull Artwork that is so popular here in Tucson, as well as our famous All Soul's Procession which occurs in early November.
The All Soul's Procession was created here in Tucson to serve our collective need to mourn, reflect, and celebrate the universal experience of Death - through our ancestors, loved ones, and the living too. Well over 150,000 participants come together on the streets of downtown Tucson for a two-mile long procession that ends in the ceremonial burning of a large Urn filled with the hopes, offerings and wishes of the public for those who have passed. This All Souls Procession is nearly 30 years old and is uniquely authentic, solemn, joyful, mournful, celebratory, and respectful. Not a parade nor a party and very few problems considering the number of people that are involved.
My desire to make this piece and the other Memento Mori pieces I have created come out of my personal experiences of this event as well as my own understanding of life and our inevitable mortality.
The intricate details run around the entire band. It is solidly crafted in your choice of 14KT white, yellow or rose gold or .925 sterling silver. I can also make this in 10KT, 18KT or 22KT gold, platinum, palladium, or most other metals. Please contact us for a quote.
Each piece is individually carved and crafted to your size. Many jewelers duplicate their original models with rubber molds, but you just don't get the same crisp detail in a mass produced copy. All of my rings are created from a first generation wax model. This ring is heavy enough to stand the test of time.
To create your individually handcrafted piece, our current workload requires approximately four weeks from the date of order to the date of shipping. If you need your piece sooner, please contact us to see if we can accommodate your request at no extra charge. Customized pieces may take longer. Please contact us for an ETA.
DETERMINING YOUR CORRECT RING SIZE
For the long term enjoyment of your ring, it is essential it fit well. It's generally best to have a local jeweler size your finger. Most will have narrow and wide ring sizing sets. Use whichever is appropriate for the ring you are ordering. Wide rings may require a slightly larger size.
I DON’T SEE MY SIZE IN THE DROP-DOWNS
If your size is less than 4 or greater than 14, or if you need a quarter size, please let us know. We will be more than happy to work with you.
Because every ring is one of a kind, we have the flexibility to make this design slightly wider or narrower depending on your preference. Want diamonds or two tone? Glad to oblige. Different gems, both natural and lab grown, as well as various metals are available. Contact us for quote. Let's work together to make the ring of YOUR dreams.
