1. the point on the celestial sphere directly below an observer.


This celestial ring is inspired by the notion of someone or something navigating your journey on earth and is the partner to the more slender Zenith ring.

Every made to order Nadir ring is created using 100% recycled 925 sterling silver, and one of a kind.

A solid half moon shaped band is hammered with clean, purposeful strikes to create an irregular texture underneath, around 3.5mm at its widest. The other side is left smooth.

To finish, Nadir is polished to a high lustre, allowing the texture to catch the light. 

Nadir also makes a beautiful wedding band, for celestial inspired simplicity.

Every piece of Ara adornment is accompanied by a natural linen & GOTS certified organic cotton pouch, designed & made in-house with minimal waste, using fabric woven in the UK.
