Gold ring of Portugal
For lovers of Portugal or descendants of Portuguese migrants, wearing a jewel stamped with the image of the country of origin of their family represents a strong emotional symbol.
It is possible to wear the image of Portugal as a pendant, the map of Portugal is well suited, or in the form of a ring engraved with the symbol of this country, as we will see here.
Example of 18-karat gold Portugal ring
In the case of the project presented here, it is a Portuguese sailing vessel (a caravel) symbol of the maritime history of this country that is represented.
Note that Portugal is not the only country that can be symbolized in the form of a jewel since we have already had the opportunity to make a type of ring or pendant for customers of different origins:
The design of the ring desired by our client is relatively simple, it is a signet ring with a large round tray reproducing a Portuguese coin.
Portuguese silver coin
The original coin being silver and our customer wanting a gold ring, so we had the mission to reproduce the design of this piece engraved on the plate of the ring, the amounts of the ring remaining smooth.
The model used as an example is a coin from Portugal struck with a caravel is visible here :

Here are some images of the stages of this ring project with the image of Portugal.
