The Dragon Shogun Ring comes with a few options: silver band with silver dragon or silver band with golden dragon. Both of these options the dragons background is oxidised helping the Dragon pop. The other two options are silver band with silver dragon and finally silver band with golden dragon, both with a red enamel background. All options come with two citrine* cabochon cut gems in the dragons feet and hands. The dragon sits atop a starburst styled pattern that ends in the epic pointed diamond shape top. Down the flanks are lightning bolts, which represent the power of the dragon and the energy it produces. On the inside the Japanese characters spell out watching or protecting dragon.
*Please note citrine may be a different colour to images as natural stones are used.
The ring comes in a sustainably sourced wooden box as well as the Serpent Cove treasure chest with all its Cove trinkets. Standard postage within Australia included, express and international postage available at an additional cost.
An iconic element of Asia is the dragon. A long snaking being of divine wisdom and power. Dragons are not exclusive to the Asian continent, however in other parts of the world the dragon is seen as a mean foul beast often guarding treasure. In places like Japan the dragon is seen as a wise soul of philosophy and knowledge full of balance, ideas of freedom and good luck. It’s known to protect and guard amazing places and is often held close. It is considered as the element of water and even rainfall and storms.
There are many things that inspired me on doing a Japanese styled dragon but the main one would be my love of learning Japanese at school. I loved learning not just the language but also the culture. This is also where I learnt that I was born in the year of the dragon, '88 both the dragon and number are things that hold a lot of luck in my life. Dragons are epic beasts of mysticism that are everywhere and something I personally hold close.
