Symbolism in your rings

For almost thirty years Todd has been hand crafting on-of-a-kind pieces of intricate jewelry. His self-taught signature style is treasured all over the world. In this page, we encourage you to explore some of they symbolism that you can weave into you rings. Our rings are very personal and symbolic. Whether it  is using loved ones birthstones, incorporating sentimental golds, we can create something unique for you and your partner. Someone no one, including us, has ever seen.

If the same braid is chosen for both people, Todd can weave one long braid and create both wedding rings out of this single braid. 

 For some, this represents two separate individuals who choose to weave their two lives together.

Materials Symbolism - Gemstones and Metals

All of our gemestones are real and natural high-quality stones. Some people do not want diamonds on their wedding bands or engagement rings. They would rather add a splash of color and a unique gemstone is a great way to do just that.

braided ring with a ruby. Also this is an engagement ring with a sapphire. Both these rings are braided rings with our cord of three braid.

Number Symbolism

Todd braids his rings with varying numbers of wires, or strands. Our smallest braid has three strands and our largest is ten strands. People have certain numbers that are sentimental and that sometimes leads to the choice of rings they get. For instance; we had a couple that brought together three children when getting married so they got a five strand ring because they felt that it was all members of their family weaving together in their new life. 

This unique braided ring we designed specifically for the Christian community. After receiving many calls from kind people looking for wedding rings braided from three strands, a cord of three as reflected in the Bible.For many this braid design represents two people on their journey together entwined by love. We think this symbolism is very beautiful and often the final product comes out stunning. People have expressed their own unique symbolism in this braid design by picking different colored golds to represent themselves (couple strands) and God/Love (God strand). Another option some people choose is using our “rope strand” for the God/Love strand. 

The symbolism in these rings comes from the Bible in Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Instead of braiding, Todd takes fine strands of gold and hand swirls them into what some see as waves others see as just beautiful swirls. Unlike many of Todd’s other designs each swirl ring comes out a little different, making each one a one-of-a-kind original piece of art. You can then add the birthstones of your children or family members to represent everything.
