Ouroboros Snake Ring
The ouroboros symbol of a snake swallowing it's own tail has been in use since ancient Egyptian and Grecian times. It symbolizes eternity and endless return, as well as the unity of time's beginning and end. The oldest known ouroboros appeared on the golden shrine in the tomb of King Tutankhamen in the 123th century BC.
This ring is cast in solid gold and etched with an alternating pattern of snake scales for protection, and barque inspired rolling acanthus leaves representing enduring life for good luck and good health. And the twinkling eyes of the snake can be your choice of Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald.

Tamsin Rasor, born in London, grew up in Europe and the Mediterranean and now lives in NYC - designing and creating her jewelry here after working for a decade in the Fashion Industry between London, NYC, and Asia. You can see the global culture in her unique visual voice, featuring bright colors, beautiful lines, and the inspired chic rainbows, ombrés and color gradients combining carefully selected and completely transparently ethically sourced stones from mother Earth, which she sets in recycled gold. Her master jewelry makers create these art pieces in NYC, working with their hands to create something really special for you to wear for the rest of your life.
Featured engagement + commitment rings are every day wearable.
For Humans We Love, I've hand selected favorite Tamsin Rasor designs that are perfect as alternative engagement and commitment rings -- including only the strongest stones (8-10 rating) on the Mohs scale for everyday wearability. For all of her designs featured with us, all materials include transparently sourced gemstones, and where not possible, HWL offers an identical version of that specific design (i.e. rings with tiny rubies) with lab grown stones as noted. All diamond rings can be sourced with your ideal ethical diamond source in mind, including vintage, Canadian (which is one of the highest ethical labor certifications of diamonds), and lab grown. xo Leanne
