R0144 - Chevron Sterling Ring


Sterling Silver Ring

The chevron ring (also known as a wish bone ring) has a classic inverted V shape. This V symbol has been used for thousands of years. It is a common sign used in heraldry. It also features on military and police badges and uniforms, representing the length of service given. It was also an important sign for the Greek Spartans; the symbol was depicted on their shields when they marched into battle. For the Celts, it was a sign of a warrior or hunter, representing the arrowheads they used for protection and hunting. The chevron is also said to represent the rises and falls that we encounter in life. 

How a chevron ring is worn can affect its meaning: a chevron pointing downward is associated with Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. When pointed upward, it is associated with Mars and all the gods of war. Spartan, Roman, and Greek warriors would wear such rings (crafted from simple materials) in battle as it was a symbol of protection.
