Who is your Destiny? Tie one on...

Posted on March 08 2012

The concept of soul mates has been around since humans discovered how to love. So, basically forever. Cubby and I have been honored this month to create a touchingly beautiful item that expresses this concept. For our special customer, the way to show his devotion was through the legend of The Red Thread of Destiny, (Also called the Red String of Fate.) known in Japan as “Akai Ito”.

It goes a little something like this-

When you are created, the gods tie an invisible red string to your little finger. Also attaching the other end of your string to your soul mate. Over time this string may be stretched or tangled, but never broken. Somewhere in this life or the next, you will find this person and you will become complete.

Whether or not you subscribe to the idea that we all have a soul mate, is your choice indeed. From either side, it is an elegant and alluring sentiment.

Like I said before, Cubby and I were honored to be part of the creation of such a meaningful ring. We will be forever touched by the beauty of its purpose.

Here are some photos of the finished product. We hope you enjoy!

    I would really love to have a set made for me and my girlfriend. I think I may propose to her someday. How much would this cost?

    I am so glad you shared this beautiful piece and it’s inspirational story. These would make extraordinary anniversary rings (or any other romantic milestone).

    Reading this improved…Nay, brought some much needed warmth to my day, which I didn’t think was possible today. The rings are beautiful as usual. Thanks for sharing!
