Princess Monarch Ring in Gold Plated Sterling Silver & Buffalo Bone
One of our signature Monarch Rings, the Princess features a sterling silver band and regal gold-plated crown setting, adorned with a buffalo bone cabochon. The intricate crown and squaw wrapped band make for a piece of rare artistry.
Sourced only from naturally perished buffalo, the soul of this majestic beast lives on in our hand-crafted pieces. Use of buffalo bone in jewellery was first recorded thousands of years ago, with Native American tribes hunting the animal for food, using its skins for warmth and carving its bones for ceremonial breastplates, chokers and tribal adornment. Regarded as a sacred animal, the buffalo was revered for its powerful traits – strength, endurance and courage – and by wearing bone jewellery it was believed the wearer would be enhanced by these qualities. Our sustainably sourced bone pieces carry on this ancient tradition but with a contemporary edge, melding the earthy soul of the buffalo with gleaming sterling silver and radiant gold-plate.
