Galina Large Ring - SilverBiko
Each Item Sold Supports A Local Jewelry Designer, Sustainable Design & Manufacturing & Giving Back Through Partnerships With Charitable Organizations
BIKO is a ‘modern nostalgic’ jewelry brand. Each piece is conceptualized and hand-crafted with love by a small team in Toronto, led by founder Corrine Anestopoulos. Born in 2005, BIKO draws inspiration from global treasures and found curiosities that translate into wearable, contemporary silhouettes. BIKO marries vintage inspiration with sleek mixed metals, hand-cast pendants and natural stones to create high-quality, versatile pieces that can be enjoyed as a solo statement or layering perfection, all telling a signature story.
BIKO is honoured o have been nominated for the Canadian Arts & Fashion Accessory Designer of the Year for the last three consecutive yeas - 2018, 2019 and 2020, and we love that!
This is THE cocktail ring you've been waiting for. Galina is the Greek word meaning 'calm; windless'. Reflective in nature, soft in shape and serene in mood, this piece was hand-cast from a beautiful pebble that designer Corrine found on her grandmother's village beach in Bolati, Greece. Each original casting was hollowed out to allow for a comfortable wearing weight, and hand-polished to mirror perfection. Also available in Small and Medium pebble versions.
- Rhodium plating over brass, hypoallergenic
- Hand-cast & polished forms
- Pebble: 1.25” length, 1.1” width, Available in sizes 7, 8, 9
Made with love in Toronto, Canada
For increased longevity, keep jewelry clean and dry using a soft cloth. Avoid wearing your jewelry in the shower or during exercise, and wear after applying perfume or hairspray. Protect your piece from rain and humidity. When not wearing, be sure to store inside a jewelry box or soft jewelry pouch, such as the pink branded BIKO pouch provided.
All BIKO pieces are plated in 14k gold or rhodium, over brass. They do not tarnish or cause discolouration on the skin. All earring posts are surgical stainless steel, and hypo-allergenic. Wear your BIKO jewels often; love them always.
