St. Benedict Signet Ring by DRU.


| /

Stats: The Saint Benedict Signet Ring is a large signet meant to make a statement. It was cast from an original antique medallion. A Saint Benedict medal is worn by many to ward off evil. St. Benedict is the Patron Saint of Europe and considered a worker of miracles. In the cross on the face of the ring are the initial letters for the Latin prayer: May the dragon never be my guide. Around the outside are the initial letters of the prayer: Begone Satan! Never tempt me with your vanities! What you offer me is evil. Drink the poison yourself! Above the cross reads "pax," which translates to "peace" and is the motto of St. Benedict and his followers. The St. Benedict signet is a heavy piece but the shank wraps perfectly around the finger and lays flat, so it is comfortable and can be worn everyday.

Diameter of face: 21 mm

Story: One-of-a-kind antique and cast medallions of icons, Saints, crosses, and sayings comprise DRU., the fine jewelry collection in 14K gold, sterling silver, and precious gemstones, which designer Thea Miller launched in 2016.  Steeped in history and the power and protection behind religious iconography, the collection is as bold and edgy as it is symbolic. It can be viewed as armor and encouragement and carries meanings of faith, hope, love, empowerment, good fortune, and support.

When asked how Thea believes customers should buy and wear and collection pieces, she says, "My collection is about jewelry with significance that one can wear as armor, but it is also about having some fun and getting creative. It should be worn according to one’s mood. The pieces are meant to be tongue-in-cheek, like “Be A Lady” or more inspiring like the “En Theos” ring. “No matter which way you view the collection—it should ultimately be about the person who is wearing it,” Thea concludes.
