Gold Septum Ring of Abundance. Cast and hand-finished. Made from 100% Recycled Gold.

Handcrafted, solid gold septum ring inscribed with a motif inspired by textiles and tattoo patterns in the Philippines. The artist behind Sacred Spirit Ink, Julay Nieto, says this pattern is meant to represent growing rice stalks signifying abundance. It's also similar to a tattoo pattern of centipede legs, which represents our ancestors.

Choose between a 16 gauge (1.3mm) and 18 gauge (1mm).

Cultural Significance

Pre-colonial Filipinx people believed that gold had the ability to hold our ancestor’s energy and stimulated the goodness of our souls. They also wore gold as a form of protection. To keep unwanted spirits from entering a person, it was important to wear gold at the end of bodily openings like the nose, ears & eyes; in order to close off entry from malevolent entities. 

Collective Resilience

Re-creating this sacred object using solid gold is meant represent the story of our collective resilience; that despite the Spanish destroying our sacred objects; exploiting our natural resources & attempting to corrupt our culture & traditions, we are still here shinning. We are SOLID GOLD.

 How does it open?

This is solid gold septum ring that will bend to open & close. To open, twist from side to side (not front to back) to ensure the septum keeps its shape and doesn't weaken the wire.

Will this fit me?

To determine fit measure a ring you wear, if it's 10mm in diameter or smaller, this ring will fit you.
