Walker Goldsmiths lost wax cast Sterling Silver Lovebirds Ring band#308 celebrates the custom of the Northwest Coast Native Indians. By recognizing the two most important clans, the Ravens and the Eagles in a time honored tradition.
“In the last century when the Native cultures of the Northwest Coast were flourishing and the wealth of the fur trade was flowing throughout the world, a curious custom was born. When a man was mature and wealthy enough to seek a wife he had to look outside his clan,and had to receive the permission of the woman’s uncle before he could court her and make his intentions known to her family. He announced his suit by giving her a gift. Among the Tlingit people of Alaska there are only two clans, the Ravens and the Eagles. The gift of choice was a silver or gold bracelet, hand-carved with the symbol of both clans, the Eagle and the Raven, hence Love Birds.”…Owen Walker
Walker Goldsmiths has taken that custom and produced a Lovebirds ring. This is a band that we often suggest to be used for wedding rings. It’s been well accepted, even used by our daughter and her husband as their ring of choice.
