This elegant design is over 100 years old, an excellent example of old world sterling silversmithing- handmade into a beautiful ring! A high relief Poppy is depicted flowing and drooping in the popular Art Nouveau style of the times. Made by the Alvin Co, in their mulit-motif pattern called, "Majestic" of 1900.
** Engraved "M/W" may be removed for free upon request with purchase. This will alter the appearance slightly- please see last 3 photos. We do not offer engravings at this time **
Civilizations have used poppies to represent sleep, peace, and death throughout history and may also remind us of the 1900 book The Wizard of Oz. Exquisite detail of an Oriental Poppy and buds, on the front and back of this ring. The Poppy flower symbolizes many things including fertility, beauty, consolation, magic, and eternal life.It is known that Egyptians used poppies in burial rites. The Greeks used poppies to honor the goddess Demeter, goddess of fertility, and Diana, the goddess of the hunt. Poppies are also associated with sleep, rest and repose. In modern times, poppies have can denote associations with Flanders Fields as an emblem of those who died in World War I.
This is not a reproduction but an original piece.
Made of and stamped Sterling Silver, I put a brushed finish on these rings 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, as seen in the photo.
Please Send me a message with purchase if you'd like to have your ring 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.

(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.
