The story of the rings
The title of the above ring set is ‘‘Ispiming, Gimishoomisinaan idash Gookomisinaan Niimi'idiwag." This is Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe) for ‘‘Our Grandfather and Grandmother Are Dancing in the Sky."
The ring set is part of my wedding ring line Debwewin (Truth). The rings are handmade and consist of 14K palladium white gold exteriors. The interior of the men's ring is sterling silver; the ladies' ring has an inside of 14K red gold. The rings have inlays of red gold (the ladies' ring) and yellow gold (both men's and ladies' ring). Ring width: 0.28 inches (7 mm).
The designs of sun and moon (and stars) in these rings are complementary. Depicting the circular paths of the moon and the sun, the inlaid designs symbolize that everything in nature is round or circular. Also do they symbolize the union of two beings under the protection of the Universe and of a new beginning as they contain a promise of warmth, light, growth, and protection. But most of all the designs remind us of how much we are all connected with (and blessed by) GICHI MANIDOO, the Great Mystery of the Universe....

Ring sizing information
When ordering, make sure to mention the exact size(s) of the wedding band(s) of your choice.
Please note that professional sizing methods are more reliable and accurate than online or at-home methods. Professional sizing can be done at a local, reputable jeweler.
It is important to take into account the width of your band as wider bands typically require a larger size to fit comfortably. It is therefore always best to be sized with a ring sizer (a jeweler's wedding band gauge) of the same width as that of the ring you intend to purchase.
Please note that in case the ring size or sizes relayed by the customer to the jeweler turn(s) out to be inaccurate or no longer up-todate on delivery, all costs for resizing the ring(s) or making new ring(s) will be entirely for the customer's account.
