“What have I got in my pocket?” Bilbo Baggins asks this question at a pivotal moment in The Hobbit (coming soon to theaters near you!) The answer was a gold ring, a magical golden ring.
There’s a long and established tradition of gold rings being magical. Today, of course, most of the magic is in the beauty and design. We don’t sell any gold horse rings that will make you invisible – but we do have fine gold horse rings that will proclaim your sense of elegance and style, as well as your passion for horses.
When you’ve got a great gold horse ring, you never want to take it off. Life with horses can make this difficult. We’re always doing stuff with our hands. We’re opening the grain bin. We’re brushing down a dusty coat. We’re cutting open bales of hay. We’re opening the grain bin. We’re cleaning saddles, halters, and bridles. We’re checking hooves for stones. We’re braiding tails and manes. We’re opening the grain bin. (Notice a pattern? There are some very insistent mares in this part of the world, that’s all I’m saying!) Rings with high-set stones can easily get caught, snagged, or damaged. This can result in settings being forced open, and valuable gem stones being lost in the barn. (You think you’ve cleaned stalls before? Try finding a half-carat diamond in the stable muck. It’s no fun at all!)
For this reason, we recommend Rider Rings to our most active customers. These rings are beautiful gold horse rings, with plenty of equestrian flair and styling – but they’re designed with the horsewoman in mind. They feature low designs and channel set stones, which keeps them from catching or snagging on things. You can wear a Rider Ring all day long, every day, whether you’re headed to the barn or the ballroom. It’s always beautiful, always stylish and appropriate, and always safe.
