This lovely Sterling silver Spoon pendant was made from a mold of an original souvenir spoon, and is of the angel Moroni playing his horn. A great gift for that LDS friend or family member.
The Angel Moroni is an angel that Joseph Smith, Jr. said visited him on numerous occasions, beginning on September 21, 1823. According to Smith, the angel was the guardian of the golden plates, which Latter Day Saints believe were the source material for the Book of Mormon, buried in a hill near his home in western New York. Moroni is an important figure in the theology of the Latter Day Saint movement, and is featured prominently in Mormon architecture and art. Three Witnesses besides Joseph Smith also reported that they saw Moroni in visions in 1829, as did several other witnesses who each said they had their own vision.
Made of and stamped Sterling Silver, I put a brushed finish on this pendant to even out the surface for a brilliant satin finish! Simply stunning with the patina we've added to help the design really pop! Other Free Finishing options available upon purchase.
Please Send me a message with purchase if you'd like to have your pendant given a free re-finishing:
1. Cloth Polishing- shiny but still vintage with a satin brush finish slightly visible and still dark in the crevices
2. Re Brush- keep the satin brush finish, but make the patina/ tarnish lighter
3. Combination of 1 & 2- Lighten the patina with a re Brush, then give it a cloth polish.
This particular pendant is a solid 925 sterling silver casting we made of a unique and stunning spoon pattern originally made around the 1900's which we soldered a high quality sturdy bale to! We make our castings from recycling the bowls we cut from the antique sterling silver spoons we make into rings and pendants. It's a great way for us to up-cycle and keep the sterling spoon silver in top quality spoon ring form. We hope you enjoy this lovely pattern as much as we do!

(Quick explanation of what a "Brush Finish" is: All of our spoons are annealed and cleaned in pickle before they are bent- thus removing all natural patina. After bending and rounding, we apply a rapid oxidation with liver of sulfur that makes the entire ring black. We then remove this patina on all of the raised surfaces of the spoon ring with a microfiber wheel brush. This gently removes the patina from the more ornate parts and on the inside of the ring by brushing it with the microfibers. This gives it a more satin finish that is easier to photo and looks more Vintage- Hence: Brush Finish)

There are many ways we can help you find your ring size! We offer store credit of the entire product price of our ring sizers. Or I can give specific to your ring instructions on how to adjust at home after purchase. Just send us a message!
To ensure a good fit, make sure to measure your finger from knuckle to knuckle and compare it with the amount of mm indicated in the ---specs--- location of the listing. For wider rings like Spoon Rings, you typically want to go up about .25 in ring size and up to .5 size for the very wide designs.
Feel free to ask us about our Contact List for items you may see that are no longer in our store or if you have a specific pattern you'd like to request. We are always trying to restock and take custom orders all the time.
Due to the nature of our inventory, original spoons are sometimes hard to find and can take a few weeks, up to a couple of years depending on the pattern!
Casting reproductions take about 2 to 5 weeks, rush orders are available a well.
We offer Free finishing! We brush finish all of our handmade rings, but do offer a few different finishing options before shipping:
- Cloth Polishing- shiny but still vintage with a satin brush finish slightly visible and still dark in the crevices
- Re Brush- keep the satin brush finish, but make the patina/ tarnish lighter
- Combination of 1 & 2- Lighten the patina with a re Brush, then give it a cloth polish.
And if you get your ring and you'd like an extra polish, or a bit less patina, or whatever you prefer, just send it on back and we'll make sure you love your ring with photos before we ship it back.
We do not offer engraving at this time, but we do remove them for free! The engravings you see on our rings are antique and original to the spoon we bent.
Sometimes we have been able to find spoons with specific engraved letters when requested! But this usually takes a few weeks to shop around for.
We do offer FREE re-sizing on all Spoonier SPOON ring orders- no expiration! Some rings may be able to be pinched down a little, but due to the soft Sterling we use, many tools used may scratch or dent the silver! So the best thing to do would be to send it back to us, or get it sized at a local jewelry store. Please message us for details.
All of our spoons are annealed and cleaned in pickle before they are bent- thus removing most of if not all natural patina. After bending and rounding, we apply a rapid oxidation with liver of sulfur that makes the entire ring a graphite grey/black. We then remove this patina on all of the raised surfaces of the spoon ring with a microfiber wheel Brush. This gently removes the patina from the more ornate parts of the ring and the inside of the ring by brushing it with the microfibers. This gives it a more satin finish that is easier to photo and looks more Vintage- Hence: Brush Finish
Please allow 3-10 business days for domestic orders to arrive, and be sure to include a ring size if you weren't able to in the ordering process. Faster shipping available upon request.
We do not offer wholesale. But if you plan to spend more than $500, we can give you a better coupon code if you send me a message.
