"Aila" means "from the strong place". This ring represents the wise serpent that guards her heart. Snakes have been used in many cultures in metal form and in jewelry for thousands of years. Often symbolizing rebirth and romance, being intertwined and connected. The ouroboros (snake eating its tail) was a symbol of the full circle of life (both life and death). She celebrates life, protecting those closest to her, reflecting light. Aila would make the perfect right hand ring or ceremonial ring.

Please note: While every effort is made to photograph the items to be an accurate representation, photography and computer monitors have limitations and differences. These images were taken with a Canon DSLR and macro lens (this shows much more detail than the eye can see). Colors and brightness may vary on different devices. I believe these pieces look so much prettier in person when held in the hand and admired by the eye (I've also been told this many times by Knot & Splice customers). I hope you're delighted when you receive your special piece in the mail.
