This ring is sculpted in sterling silver, with a subtle oxidized finish to reveal the depth and detail of the original design. The inside surface, against the finger, is hand-polished to a mirror finish with a comfortable fit. Mehen is an Egyptian snake-god (the ‘coiled one’) who assisted Ra in his fight against Aapep. In many traditions and cultures, the snake is a symbol of steady power, and we pay homage to this shared heritage around the world with this striking piece. Coiled around your finger, Mehen confers that steady power in both presentation and intention.
