Late 19th Century Chinese Bone Archer's Ring

About

Hand carved of animal bone, this late 19th century Archer's ring was likely worn by a gentleman-scholar in northern China. Typically carved of jade, Chinese archers wore these rings to protect their thumbs while drawing back a bowstring. Over time, these rings became fashion accessories and a decorative display of status. Rings made of rare organic materials such as Horn, bone, and unusual gem stones were the most desirable. This stunning carved-bone ring remains a fashionable accessory even today and fits to ring size 13. All jewelry sales are final. No refunds or exchanges.
