Stories in silver.
Inspired by ancient mythology and legends, I created Urban Sterling to tell stories through the medium of precious metals. An unhurried and discerning design ethos ensures that each piece is a clear expression of an artistic vision, while strict manufacturing processes ensure it will last centuries to come.
Founded in October 2020 in the city of Newcastle, Urban Sterling is a modern company with modern values. Ethical practices are at the forefront of all business decisions, including establishing partnerships only with suppliers with certified 100% recycled and slavery free supply chains. Labour is never outsourced overseas, and all domestic shipping is carbon neutral.
Rouge is a small circle signet with a line drawing of a rose engraved into the face. I designed this piece to be as gender neutral as possible, and sparse detail keeps the piece minimalistic to work with any style. Because of this, it makes an excellent Valentine’s Day gift for anyone.
Rouge means red in French, a reference to red roses. In Western culture, the significance of the red rose dates back to Greek mythology and the belief that the red rose was created by Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Legend has it that the flower grew from the ground watered with Aphrodite’s tears and the blood of her ill-fated lover Adonis.
Red roses have captured the minds and hearts of lovers across the globe for generations. Giving a single stem or bunch of red roses on your anniversary, first date, Valentine’s Day, or just because is the perfect way to say, “I love you” when words are not enough.
