This small Tokyo based brand is all handmade in Japan. The word Newtive really describes the aesthetics of Munqa that comes from mixing classic native american jewelry, popular culture and a large pinch of playfulness to make contemporary jewelry intended to spread joy and happiness!
This hand made silver ring has a peace sign symbol on the front. Today it is a symbol that has been used in many ways in various cultures and contexts. This symbol was designed by Gerald Holtom in the 50's as a symbol for the Britis Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, The symbol is based on the semaphore signals for the letters "N" and "D" for "Nuclear Disarmament" and if you put the semaphore signals on top of each other you get this symbol!
These rings are made with an opening making them easy to adjust if you need it to be slightly bigger or smaller.
If you need to change the size of the ring take care not to rush the process. The proper way to do it is to warm the ring in your hands and then give it a slight squeeze to close it or bend to open it, and then let it rest until the next day. Repeat the process until you are happy with the result!
