Poseidon's Mistress

Regular price $150.00 30-DAY RETURNS

Throughout history, Turquoise rings and stones have been synonymous with mortality. Used thoroughly when decorating the world's most monumental tomb, the Taj Mahal, and in the creation of renowned King Tut's burial mask. Ancient Persians wore it as protection against death, while the Aztecs inlaid them into the skulls of their fallen leaders. Throughout history It has been used as a holy stone, a stone used to bring immortality. For us? The Poseidon's Mistress is a symbol of new life and of new beginnings—being one of our very first designs for Merchants of the Sun.

The Poseidon's Mistress features an American Turquoise Cabochon carefully set in the center of the ring. As this ring can be considered a statement ring, we recommend pairing this ring with more minimal styles such as the Sunwalker and the Merchants Signet.

As our natural stones are derived from raw mined turquoise and then cut and polished by our silversmiths, you may notice a variance in appearance in comparison to the picture as each stone is unique in its colour and patterns.

This ring was crafted with time and care, handmade from recycled 925 sterling silver and oxidized to add character. Each ring is then individually worn and hammered to give it a rugged aesthetic—creating the charm that it was crafted many years before its time.


By batch-crafting our pieces from 925 Recycled Sterling Silver we are able to stick to a 'cradle to cradle' methodology where waste is minimised in production, and most of our materials used are either renewable resources or already in circulation in closed loops⁠.

Our recycled silver is sourced from offcuts and waste used in industrial production. Our packaging is crafted from both recycled cardboard, and paulownia wood—one of the fastest-growing trees in the world, farmed specifically for production.⁠

As we grow, we will endeavour to be as transparent as possible on how we are adhering to this concept. ⁠
