The word menefer means beautiful city, and such was the metropolis of Thonis in Ancient Egypt. It was the bustling, jewels, spice, and silk-filled place, on the banks of the River Nile, in which the famous Helen of Troy and Paris had their lovers’ sojourn. Although it was watched over by a great God of fertility and life, it eventually sank below the river’s rippled surface.

There its riches remained, the beautiful gems spilling from coffers and becoming encrusted with coral, mother of pearl, and sparkling silt. The Thonis Menefer Ring commemorates this magical ancient city. Available in gold-plating and sterling silver. Sterling silver set with amethyst, gold varieties set with moonstone. Available in gold-plating, vermeil, and sterling silver.

Handcrafted and individually cast. Each piece is unique, which we believe gives it its beauty.
