The Unity Ring is made from two budding vines wrapped around each other to form one solid band.
“Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”
In Old Norse Literature, Askr ok Embla, or Ask and Embla were two trees that later became the ancestors of all humankind after three Norse gods breathed life, sense, and motive into them. It is believed that Ask was an Ash tree and Embla was either an Elm or Vine.
Our Unity Ring is an homage to this storied myth. As Ask and Embla reached for the other in their varietal and corporal forms, so do the sprigs of the Unity Ring. Two become one via twisting and weaving vines that converge into one pleasingly polished and comfortable band.
The Unity Collection is crafted from two vines that are wrapped around each other to form a single band, symbolizing the strength and beauty of two lives intertwined.
This design is inspired by the mythological tale of Askr and Embla, the first human couple in Norse mythology. According to the story, Askr and Embla were created by the gods from two trees, an ash and an elm, and were brought to life to start the human race. Similarly, the Unity rings bring two individual lives together to form a united bond, just as Askr and Embla were united by the gods to create the human race.
The intricate design of the vines also holds a deeper meaning, representing the twists and turns of life's journey. Just as vines grow and interweave with one another to form a beautiful pattern, our lives are intertwined with the people we love, forming a unique and intricate bond that can never be broken.
