Unique Handmade Rings

Rings are intimate objects - tiny sculptures that delight the wearer as well as the viewer. These unique handmade rings celebrate the interplay of color, texture, and materials. Organic hand-carved bands, vibrant stone statement rings, and sleek cigar bands in gold, silver, and bronze complement each other beautifully.

Handcrafted Rings By Kirsten Muenster Jewelry

Each handcrafted ring wraps luxuriously around the finger and becomes an extension of the wearer. Sourcing influences from modernist architecture to storied world cultures, these wearable sculptures will become a part of your personal story.

Our Commitment

Every unique handmade ring is crafted in our San Francisco studio, emphasizing ethical practices and environmental care. We use 100% recycled precious metals, and conflict-free stones, ensuring our materials are responsibly sourced.


Styling

Like the organic forms found in the natural world, these hand crafted rings range from bold statements to delicate details that allow for experimentation and contrast. Create a ring stack that reflects your own unique style and idiosyncrasies.


Caring

Your hand made rings will develop a unique patina and texture over time. Occasional cleaning with a polishing cloth can keep them looking like new. A mild soap and water cleaning is also fine for most pieces. Avoid harsh chemicals and toxic “jewelry dips” for cleaning, this can cause harm to the stones and the user.

Protect your rings by avoiding contact with perfumes, lotions, and household chemicals. Remove them before swimming or exposing them to chlorinated or salt water. Store each ring individually to protect against scratches, in an anti-tarnish pouch, sealed plastic bag, or a fabric-lined jewelry box.

Design Philosophy

“My work celebrates the subtle beauty of the natural world. The rings are like tiny worlds, that ask you to stop and look closer, imbued with moments of joy and surprise. I try to create special pieces that you reach for every day.”

- KIRSTEN MUENSTER
