Urban Sterling is all about taking inspiration from history and ancient cultures, and this ring does exactly that. The runes inscribed into the band are from the Younger Furthark alphabet; a child language of the Elder Furthark tongue. Younger Furthark also goes by Scandinavian Runic. The lifetime of this language corresponds with the Viking Age.
The ring itself is a 935 Argentium Silver band inscribed with Younger Furthark runes. Get your choice of band type (Faceted, Rounded, Straight) and runes. Leave your request in the additional section of your order and I will translate it into the runes for you. If you would like me to translate it into a different runic alphabet – Anglo-Saxon for example, just let me know in the order notes. The ring comes with an Urban Sterling certificate of authenticity in a wax-sealed envelope. Please let me know in the comments section of the checkout who you’d like me to address the certificate (in the case that its a gift). You can also shoot me a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s anything else you’re keen on, including an engraving.
Custom 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 a custom order, I start creating the physical model in wax as soon as possible. Once it’s done, it gets shipped out to my casting house in Sydney, where they cast it in Argentium silver. Within a week the raw-cast will arrive back 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 engraving, 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 (email@example.com) 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 11-14 business for your Baldr to arrive as all Urban Sterling products are handcrafted and made to order. The ring you receive will be polished 935 Argentium Silver.
Sianna Lloyd –
I’m over the moon with the pieces I’ve received from Mason! Each piece is uniquely individual and grounded in strong ethical practices. The rune band specifically is rugged and looks like it’ll last a lifetime. I recommend Urban Sterling onto all of my friends, and encourage anyone seeking a gorgeous gift for themselves or a loved one to look no further.
