18ct Yellow Gold
EAGLE GUN RING
An important design from the piratical Aguila Dorada collection, this ring takes the form of a beautifully hand-sculpted eagle’s head in yellow gold. Hannah drew inspiration from the carved end of an antique dueling pistol.
The Eagle Gun Ring is unashamedly weighty: elegant, sensual and sculpted this ring is a subtle statement of luxury and strength.

I have always had a more-than-mild obsession with eagles, and for ‘Aguila Dorada’, I even used the name within the title to refer to my mythical figure on whom the story is built around. The golden eagles in this collection are something of a talisman, an emblem of protection and power.
The collection itself grew from a tale of adventure. The narrative derives from a wild and reckless character – a man who has sailed the seven seas and has returned with chilling tales to tell and dark secrets to keep. It is a tale of piracy and black deeds – an untamed life on the seas.
The eagle in this ring was developed from the drawings I made of a beautiful pair of duelling pistols I found during my research. The carved butts of the pistols took on the form of an eagle’s head. I took this as my starting point and manipulated the form to wrap sensually around the finger.
I loved the voluptuous shape of the eagle’s head, and hand carved this ring to capture those forms, in the most sculptural way I could.
A somewhat subtler sibling to the Eagle Gun Icon ring, this Aguila Dorada is a tribute to untamed freedom, a talisman for a life of adventure. Or at least that is how I like to imagine it.
