Ara I the altar
Zenith ring by Ara I the altar is hand-forged from eco-friendly recycled 925 sterling silver, and one of a kind. A solid half moon shaped band is hammered with clean, purposeful strikes to create an irregular texture, around 2.5mm across the top. The underside is left smooth and slightly tapered. To finish, Zenith is polished to a high lustre, allowing the texture to catch the light. Presented with a hand-printed, natural organic cotton drawstring bag and ribbon, Zenith is the perfect eco-conscious valentines gift.
Ara I the altar offers ethical, sustainable, fine jewellery for everyday wear. Taking influence from astronomy and nature, every piece possesses a unique, organic aesthetic. Lauren aims to tread lightly whilst creating each piece by hand from her workshop in North West England. Lauren adopts a vegan production process and chooses to use recycled precious metal to reduce waste, environmental impact, and repurpose existing material into something beautiful with a conscience. Every piece is presented in a GOTS certified organic cotton bag, made in a carbon neutral factory as part of an ethical supply chain, and packaged using biodegradable and recyclable postal materials. Latin for ‘the altar’, Ara is a southern polar constellation, depicted in early illustrations as an altar with burning incense, rising smoke, or sacrificial offerings. Lauren’s interpretation of this translated into the sourcing, creating and offering of beautiful, unique objects for earth-aware customers.
We love this strong warm sweet caramel & musky vanilla fragrance infused with the essence of the dark chocolate and patchouli suitable for the night time romancing your love one this valentines day.
