Septum Ring

SKU: SSSEPTBEAD17
kr269.00Price

Fine silver is 99,9% pure silver

 

Pure silver is a very soft material

Therefore, Pretiosa uses fine silver for the smaller parts of her jewelry, like bezels and other little details 

 

Sterling silver is 92,5% pure silver

 

This is an alloy made when (usually) copper, the remaining 7.5%, is combined with fine silver

 

This is a less soft and more durable material

 

 

THE SEPTUM

Before the septum ring was a look owned by the feminist and punk populations, it had beginnings in multiple cultures around the world

 

The septum ring is sometimes called a "bull-ring piercing

 

To associate septum rings with bulls is pretty common and also a correct association in some cases, as these rings can be used to break bulls for the farm life.

 

The truth is, septum rings have been used as human jewelry in many different populations;

 

To the Asmat tribe of Irian Jaya, the most popular septum jewelry were large and thick bone plugs - called "Otsj". 

Otsj are usually made from the leg bones of pigs, but occasionally they are made from the tibia bones of enemies slain in battle

 

Septum piercings were also very popular among Native American tribes

 

Australian Aboriginals used septum piercings for beauty purposes, passing a long bone through the hole to achieve the desired flattened nose
