This organic textured ring has been hand cast using tools offered up by Mother Earth.
Silver is heated until it is red hot and into its molten state, then poured with great care into the bone of a cuttlefish, where a shape has been carved to create the ring form.
What's not to love? These rings are highly experimental and beautifully natural looking, crafted with love. They are designed with both men and women in mind.
This ring complements a variety of styles. Whether you like rustic very dainty styles, or more rugged appearance in your wedding or daily life, this ring will fit with your style.
This ring can be worn as a rustic statement ring, stacker ring or a unique wedding band.
Every aspect of the design is totally unique to your ring, because the process used to create the texture cannot be repeated in an identical way. The beautiful silver or gold gains a rippled molten texture with the heating process. Your ring will be made to your size using the same techniques and will be similar but not the identical to the ring pictured.
BRAND HISTORY AND ETHICS
The name Seraga comes from the name of my father, Serag, a Coptic Egyptian. He led me through the early part of the path that is my life, encouraging my talents to flourish and so it felt appropriate to name my company after him and the ancestry that has inspired me. In ancient Egypt, jewellery was of huge importance, as was gold and other riches. In particular, I love the ancient technique of granulation, where tiny balls of precious metal are added to the metal surface for decoration. Where possible, I try to combine the luxury of these ancient jewels with the wonder of the natural world, such as ancient English woodland and the beauty of the British seaside.
I believe in the time honoured tradition of my art, that is to make each item with love and the great care it merits. Every piece of jewellery is handmade in my small workshop by the coast in Lyme Regis, Dorset. No piece is exactly the same.
I put a lot of love into each piece I make and I hope you love your piece as much as I enjoyed making it.

We had this ring made for my husband.
It is so special to us, as the fish was caught local to where he crew up.
It is such an unusual design and we both just love it so much.
When we return to the UK I am getting one of these rings as well, as it is such a special memory.
Seraga England –
Thank you so much Britta. I absolutely love making these rings. It’s so special to be able to make a ring using beach finds from where we live/lived!
