The shield-like contours of this ring are designed for optimal comfort and elegance as you blaze those trails every day. The powerful shapes are actually four hand carved hatchets symbolizing the weapon of choice for Chickasaw women of the 1730s who effectively defended their families and homes from European invaders. The shield shape of the ring brings confidence while reminding you to meet every challenge fearlessly and boldly. Today we wield knowledge instead of hatchets, however, we are no less fierce than our grandmothers, and will pass on this gift of strength to our granddaughters.
This ring is cast in sterling silver, with rose gold plate.

The Hatchet Women ~ Indigenous Resistance since 1736
During the French Indian Wars of the 1730s, villages in our southeastern homelands were under attack by French Soldiers looking to take our resources and harm our people. However, they were stopped by Chickasaw women. Armed with hatchets and skilled in combat, these unconquerable women forced the French to retreat.
