Silver Drip Ring
A sterling silver drip ring made from heavy gauge sterling silver. This excellent accessory is a simple yet elegant finishing touch when pouring wine. It prevents wine running down the side of the bottle and staining the cloth or table. The removable felt lining can be washed when necessary. This item can also be made from carat gold or platinum.
For those interested in how we make this a brief description follows.
A strip of silver is cut out and bent into a ring and is then soldered. The seam is then dressed and the ring swaged using a 'jenny' to squeeze the ribbed profile which both stiffens and hardens the ring and also forms the groove into which the felt will be finally fitted. The silver drip ring then goes to the London Assay Office for analysis, testing and hallmarking. When it arrives back in the Brentwood workshop, it is polished using 3 grades of polishing compound, the last being jewellers' rouge which imparts the highly reflective shine that is associated with sterling silver.
It will make an ideal gift for someone who appreciates fine wine and for that person to experience the feeling of luxury that comes from owning even a small piece of silver. One more silver present to complement your perfect table, whatever the occasion.
Start a silver collection with a small item and build each year. Friends and family will always know what to buy for birthday or Christmas presents.
This sterling silver drip ring is perfect for engraving a date, name or message of your choice to personalize the silver gift.
The silver drip ring is sometimes known as a wine collar and it fits snuggly around the neck of a wine bottle. Designs for this accessory date back well over 100 years. In 1872, a patent was issued to WR Miller for a drip cup which formed a circular gutter that would catch the drips. This has developed to the red or black felt lined ring that is most well known today.
