The Ouroboros (also spelled Uroboros and Oroboris),
is an ancient symbol illustrated by a serpent swallowing its own tail,
forming a circle.
From 1600 B.C. in Egypt to the movie: “the Never Ending Story”
the Ouroboros has been found in cultures through out many ages.
The Ouroboros often represents self-reflexivity or cyclicality,
something constantly re-creating itself,
the eternal return,
and other things perceived as cycles
begin anew as soon as they end.
It can also signify
the concept of primordial unity
persisting from the beginning
with such force and quality
it cannot be destroyed.
The Ouroboros has been important
in religious and mythological imagery,
used in alchemical illustrations,
where it symbolizes the circular nature of their work.
The Ouroboros Ring for your finger.
This version has a small diamond shape cut into the forehead
symbolizing the “third eye”
adding the concept of perception through illusion;
lightly textured and smooth for comfort and wear ability.
Each ring is made as it is ordered,
providing the recipient to request unusual sizes.
