Reimagined Components: Vintage Key Turtle and Hammered Gold Tone Ring Strung On 2mm Stainless Steel Oval Chain. 22"
1888 Nate's Take: "If there is a core identity to the sea It is surely the symbol of the turtle!"
Art-n-facts: This 1888 Design is a *One of a Kind.
Sure-footed and steady always comes to mind when thinking of the turtle, but it also carries a powerful ability to protect itself from harm. Often thought of as the rock for those in need. Few predators can break it's defenses so, those who connect with this symbol often hold great confidence walking into situations that may intimidate others. Last, but not least, the turtle is a symbol of longevity.
After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in one of our designs. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
~Circle / Ring~
A symbol of the never-ending, eternal & connectedness between all things.
~Keys / Locks~
Historically, Keys have been used for everything from winding pocket watches to switching on the first two-way radios! The most common symbolic meaning used for the key is its power to unlock the door to the heart, opportunity or adventure. Companies like PF Corbin (known for their beautifully engraved “Carded keys”) or the Tower company (1865 founder John Tower) who was responsible for the first metal handcuff, remind us that the key to life is making sure you have the right tools before approaching opportunity.
