Choosing the same braid allows Todd to create both wedding rings from a single braid. This symbolizes two individuals intertwining their lives into one.

Number Symbolism

Todd offers braided rings with varying numbers of strands, from three to ten. Some people have sentimental attachments to specific numbers, influencing their ring choice. For example, a couple blending three children into their new family might choose a five-strand ring, symbolizing the unity of all family members.

We’ve created a unique braided ring tailored for the Christian community, inspired by the concept of a “cord of three strands” from Ecclesiastes 4:9-12. This design symbolizes the journey of two people intertwined by love, reflecting strength and unity. Customers often personalize the symbolism further by choosing different colored golds for themselves and God/Love strands.

Todd hand-swirls fine gold strands into unique designs, resembling waves or beautiful swirls, creating one-of-a-kind pieces. Each swirl ring is distinct, making it an original work of art. Customize further by adding birthstones to represent your children or family members.
