Hunky Dory Ring
My dream ring since the moment I saw it! I searched years for information about the lizard ring worn by David Bowie in an early photoshoot for Hunky Dory. After finding out the ring was purchased from a headshop by the photographer sometime in the 60's and realizing there was no way I was going to track down the original piece and I set out to design my very own version of it!
While definitely influenced by the original, our design is different in many ways. The Hunky Dory ring features a longer, sleeker body and a more stylized shape. We have also brought in our signature textures and tool marks to make it our own. The jeweled version features one faceted black and one faceted blue stone as a tribute to Bowie's eyes. The brass of the original has been swapped out for a yellow bronze that will deepen in color and patina beautifully over time
- Ring measures 3.5" long and 2" wide
- Made of solid yellow bronze (very similar to a mild gold color)
- Available in a jeweled and non jeweled version
- Jeweled version features black and blue Spinel semi precious stones
These pieces are made to order. Please allow 4-6 weeks for production
