The Travelling Toucan Ring is a solid sterling silver signet with vines creeping down the side of the shoulders. The top of the signet has a intaglio toucan with a brightly coloured enamel beak. In the toucans feet is a 9ct yellow gold telescope and the other some treasure, a 2mm white diamond*. The leading edge of the signet says 'Seek the Journey'
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 is included, express and international postage available at an additional cost.
The birds sing and the insects chime. As the leaves rustle in the canopy they cause the light to flicker and dance above you. You see something in the shapes and look up to see if what was dancing in the shadows is still above. It's colourful beak brightly sparkles and you realise it is the Amazonian Adventure Toucan. Known to be a poor flyer it leaps and flutters through the trees with a telescope in one foot and something shiny in the other. It looks around and then it pulls out a map with its beak. Pointing down at the map with a joyful squeaky squawk as if it’s now found it’s path it flicks the telescope out towards the horizon. With a another joyful squawk it flutters off and you catch a glimpse of the shiny diamond in its other foot. You can tell it has finally found it's home, off to rest and recuperate before it shoots off on another amazing adventure.
The inspiration for this was something of adventure. The Toucan can be quite ruthless using their large beak to kill and steal other birds young out of the nests, but I wanted it’s bright beak to show. I love the idea of a toucan in a little pith helmet and a little telescope flapping through the trees looking for adventure. I also love triumph so I wanted the toucan to have already won the prize and finished the adventure. That’s why it has the diamond in its foot, its found the treasure! But it’s still hungry for seeking what is over the horizon
