Description

Our Gold and Silver Naga Ring stands out because of its curious shape. The ring’s inspiration comes from the Indian culture of Nagaland, where the aesthetic is absolutely different from the rest of India. The ring symbolizes the spikes warriors used during combat and is a symbol of the high status achieved through head-taking or combat. Adorned with 14 karat rose gold and 18 karat yellow gold, this ring embodies the rich heritage and symbolism of the Naga tradition.

The Naga tribes inhabit a small area in northeastern India and Burma. The unique geography of this region has limited external contact, leading the Naga to be largely self-sustaining. This isolation has further reinforced the introverted nature of their culture.
Among the Naga, the most prized ornaments are the ivory armlets, known as “akahaghi.” These are reserved exclusively for warriors, symbolizing the high status achieved through head-taking or combat. Crafted from the wider sections of elephant tusks, they are typically worn in pairs above the elbow. The diameter of the central opening is a natural feature of the tusk; however, only the upper part, where a suitably sized opening naturally occurs, can be utilized for these armlets. Both of these distinctive adornments of the Naga people have provided EthnoPur with the shapes and concepts that inspired the Naga collection.
