Septum Ring

SKU: SSSEPTBEAD17
kr 199,00Price
  • 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
