About the Piece:
“When you see light
You will see clearly,
The truth of misery.
Though I know nothing of such light,
The darkness lives in me.”
– Nyx, Goddess of the Night
Nyx is an elaborate triangle signet featuring design elements from the entire Celestial Collection . The face is organically recessed and oxidized to represent the infinite void of space. Saturn from Galileo and the stars from Artemis extrude from the void. The immediate transition between polished and heavily oxidized silver produces intense contrast that highlights the main elements of the piece. This piece was created as a conclusion to the Celestial Collection. The bright elements pay homage to the prior pieces, while the overall dark and moody vibe of the piece foreshadows the Abyssal Collection.
This piece, like the whole Celestial Collection, takes inspiration from Greek mythology. Nyx is the primordial Goddess of the night & darkness. It is said that Nyx was not just a representation of the night, but the night itself. Feared even by Zeus, she was one of the most powerful Goddesses in all of Greek canon.
Nyx is forged from 935 Argentium Silver using techniques dating back over 6,000 years. Each piece is made to order and handcrafted by me. The ring comes with a certificate of authenticity in a wax-sealed envelope so you know it’s the real deal.
Made to Order:
Do you really want a ring off some dusty shelf in a stock cupboard? I know I don’t. That’s why I ensure all Urban Sterling products are made to order, just for you. Here’s how I run things: when I see that you’ve just placed an order, I immediately notify my casting house in Sydney so they can get your ring started ASAP. Within a week the raw-cast will arrive at my studio, where I’ll start work on it. After I cut, sand, buff, emery, polish, and clean it by hand, it gets placed into a box with your order number in it. I pack the documentation for the piece into an envelope, sign the certificate of authenticity, and wax seal it shut. Then it goes from my studio straight to your home (or nearby post office knowing AusPost). My jewellery is made to reflect your personality and go with you everywhere, so it just wouldn’t feel right keeping it in a plastic bag in a dark cupboard.
All US Co. rings are made from 100% sustainably sourced precious metals. I personally guarantee the Argentium silver I use does not cause, support or benefit unlawful conflict, or contribute to human rights abuses or breaches of international law. You can read more about Urban Sterling ethical practices here. As well as on the Argentium website here.
I produce rings using US sizing because it just makes more sense. Please make sure you have the correct size since it is very difficult to resize a ring like this due to the flat face, which can be warped during resizing. I’ve provided some sizing charts here for your convenience. Also note you can order using “Buy now, size later” and I’ll express post you a ring sizer free of charge! Usually this sizer will arrive the next business day. After you’ve found your perfect size, simply DM me on Instagram or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll get it immediately into production.
Every Urban Sterling ring is covered by my lifetime warranty guarantee. Your piece will be free from scratches, chips, tarnish, poor finishing, manufacturing faults and breaks, in other words it’ll be perfect. Note that some of my rings may have very slight distressing incorporated into the design, as is typical for handmade products. I personally make every ring by hand and check them thoroughly so it’s unlikely you’ll ever need this warranty, but it’s there for your peace of mind. Also! If you manage to scratch / chip the ring yourself, I offer a free restoration service in-house.
After your order is placed expect to wait around 1-2 weeks for your Nyx to arrive as all Urban Sterling products are handcrafted and made to order. The ring you receive will be polished 935 Argentium Silver.
