Wear Swedish summer all year around and show off you values with this upcycled Berså Skogen Ring that features the iconic green Berså leaf.  'Skogen' means Forest in Swedish.  This ring is a timeless interpretation of the beauty of nature, combined with modern design.  Lush greenery that never fades.

The Berså Skogen Ring is made of recycled sterling silver and upcycled porcelain (from Swedish porcelain manufacturer Gustavsberg). Upcycling is fashion forward.  This classic leaf decor was designed in 1961 by Stig Lindberg for Gustavsberg and has since then become one of Sweden's most beloved patterns. 

Porcelain and silver

Size porcelain: 10x11 mm, 13x12 mm and 16x14 mm

Size ring: 20 mm adjustable

Silver becomes more beautiful the more you use it. It's durable and over time the surface acquires an elegant patinated finish. If you want to keep the high shine finish, you can clean and polish the silver with a silver-polish. Porcelain is a durable and tolerant material. It’s water-resistant and also subsists the silver-polish. Handle your Sägen jewelry with common sense like any of your favorite things.
