Triple Russian Ring Bangle Set
Order now and this item will be handmade and delivered to you within 5 working days.
The design of this fabulous triple bangle is based around a traditional russian ring which has three circles that are all slightly different. When those circles or rings are subsequently entwined together they are said to represent the notion of 'Faith', 'Hope' and 'Love'. This particular bracelet has one hammered, one plain and one beaded bangle to represent each different virtue. All three bangles are interconnected to create one unique piece of jewellery that is guaranteed to turn heads.

How it's made
As soon as we receive your order one of our trained silversmiths will begin work on your russian ring bangle. They will start by measuring out and cutting three equal lengths of 2.5mm sterling silver wire. Working with a series of hand tools they will then bend and shape the wire into circles and use a combination of solder and flux to join each piece together. Using a rawhide mallet they will then hammer the parts onto a mandrel to make sure they are perfectly round and conform to the correct sizing's for this particular product. A bench block and several texturing hammers are then used to create the patterns and effects that will make this particular piece of jewellery totally unique. All three bangles have now been individually handcrafted and now need to be interlinked to form the basis of the finished piece. This process involves carefully cutting into each one, connecting them together and once again soldering them closed.
After a quick trip to the Edinburgh assay office for hallmarking your item is now ready for the cleaning and polishing stage. The silversmith will use a combination of different sized files and sandpaper grits to make sure all soldered joins are invisible to the eye and smooth to the touch. A buffing wheel in combination with several polishing compounds are then skilfully applied to give your finished piece the shiny, mirror-like finish that it truly deserves.
Finally it's off to packaging and dispatch where your item will be placed in a Pretty Serendipity gift box, which will be carefully wrapped in tissue paper and finished off with one of our branded stickers. As a little added extra we'll also send you a 'thank you' card which includes the name of the jewellery maker who was responsible for the creation of your one of a kind piece.
