“The gods and goddesses now fallen, retreated from their garden on the mount, all that remained was a mountain spring.”
Ziggurats and temple complexes were the heart of the first cities. Ekur is a Sumerian term meaning 'mountain house'. Ekur was arguably the most sacred building in ancient Sumer, the assembly point and garden of the gods, and the point at which earth met the heavens. This design takes inspiration from these sacred sites as well as Nippur and Eridu, where the tree of life or axis mundi stood and from which the four rivers flowed out to the world.
Handcrafted in 18ct yellow gold, this ring has a gorgeous buttery worn stone like texture and soft matte finish. It features a gorgeous Mahenge Garnet with a colour shift from dusty pink/peach to cool bronze.
This is a unique one-off piece in size N. Resizing within 2-3 sizes is possible.
