Men’s ring Fortunae Filius


About the item

Fortunae Filius is a Latin phrase meaning “A spoiled child of Fortune”. The ring was created as a reminder of luck as one of the most powerful and untamed agents of our reality.

In recent years, a number of studies have suggested that luck and opportunity may play a far greater role than we ever realized, across a number of fields, including financial trading, business, sports, art, music, literature, and science. Their argument is not that luck is everything; of course talent matters. Instead, the data suggests that we miss out on a really importance piece of the success picture if we only focus on personal characteristics in attempting to understand the determinants of success.

It’s not difficult to see why many people take offense when reminded of their luck, especially those who have received the most. Allowing for luck can dent our self-conception. It can diminish our sense of control.

Your daily companion

We make sure that our items highlight but not dominate one’s appearance. The objects are certainly not designed to sit in a closed box, but to be worn on a daily basis. The item is an expansion of the key idea of the collection, and only afterwards it is a fashion object, more of an art piece than a visual statement. And since all the items are made to order, it is an art piece that was made specially for you.

 

Something to be passed down through generations

Solid silver rings have been recovered from The Royal Tombs in ancient Sumner that date to 3000BC. With proper care, your fine-quality sterling silver jewelry will last a lifetime. To minimize scratches and other damage, store your silver jewelry in either a cloth pouch or a separate compartment in your jewelry box. Avoid exposing your silver to household chemicals, like bleach and ammonia or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage sterling silver.

 

The reason we ship our silver from Belgium

Because pure silver would be too soft for durable jewelry, an alloy is added to harden the material for longer wear
The reason we ship silver from our Belgian partners is related to the Belgian Law of 11 August 1987 on the warranty of works on precious metals and the Belgian Royal Decree of 18 January 1990 on the warranty of works on precious metals, that guarantees the standards of purity for silver at 92.5% purity. The above guarantees that our Sterling Silver respects the composition as follows: 92.5% silver, 4% copper, and 3.5% zinc. Sterling silver is a standard alloy used for jewelry purposes and is safe to wear on your skin.

 

Perfecting the care

Care should also be taken to prevent silver tarnish buildup, a dulling that naturally occurs when silver reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the ambient air. To clean your silver, use a soft cloth with a polish formulated specifically to remove tarnish. You can find fine silver polishes, solutions, or cloths appropriate to remove tarnish at hardware stores or specialty craft stores. Tarnish is most easily removed when it first becomes visible, although wearing your silver jewelry often is the best way to prevent tarnish from building up. Regular cleanings of all your silver items will prevent tarnish and keep your silver bright and sparkly—and if needed, a fresh coat of rhodium from your local silversmith will restore sterling silver’s original shine.
