This is a handmade ring in sterling silver based on Howl's Calcifer fire band. The band is 8mm wide comfort fit and is 1.5mm thick and bezel set with a 4mm cabochon stone in a bezel framed by a twist pattern. The flower patterns on the side are evenly spaced similar to in the the movie, though depending on the size required it can affect the pattern a bit. The original was custom requested by a cosplayer I met at Anime Next who wanted it for his Howl's cosplay.

Howl's Ring is a magical object that appears in the movie adaptation of Howl's Moving Castle. It holds a connection to Howl's heart within Calcifer. Calling out to Calcifer causes the small stone on it to emit a beam of light pointing in his direction.

Following Sen to Chihiro (Spirited Away), Howl's Moving Castle is Hayao Miyazaki's latest feature anime with Studio Ghibli, based on the novel by Diana Wynne Jones. The heroine of the story is a young hatmaker called Sophie, who, after an encounter with the attractive Wizard Howl, was paid a visit by the Witch of the Wastes and her minions. The witch was jealous of Sophie and cast a spell on her to turn her into a bent-backed old woman. In confusion, and hoping to find a cure for the spell, Sophie set out in search of the Wizard Howl. On her way, she met and helped a hopping scarecrow, whom Sophie named Turniphead. Turniphead led Sophie to Howl's castle, which was a visually grotesque jumble of messy machinery. In the castle, which was suprisingly homey compared to the monstrous exterior, Sophie met the fiesty flames demon, Calcifer, who fuels the energy of the moving castle. She also made friends with Wizard Howl's help, Markl, who has a magical cape that sprouts him a giant moustache. Sophie assumes the postition of the house cleaner, joining this somewhat dysfunctional family. We learn later on in the story that almost all the characters are under some kind of spell (must be some kind of trend) including the Wizard Howl's, who has the ability to shapeshift into a feathered flying predator. Wizard Howl's was approached by 2 warring countries to join the war, and in cowardice, sends Sophie as his mother to reject the appointment. The plot thickens as Sophie meets the Madame Suliman. Howl and gang then tries to escape from everybody else. That was when the story gets weirdly confusing yet pleasantly entertaining. The main attraction of the movie is probably the fantastical castle, which opens its main door to anywhere Howl wills it to. The castle has a variety of staircases and endless rooms, secret tunnels leading to elsewhere. A visual feast for Miyazaki fans.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the items have tracking?

Most of my items don't have tracking unless to the USA, but those that do will have it written on the listing, such as my custom gold jewellery, bracelets and such. But If you order and you decide you want an upgrade, message me and I'll tell you what the difference is and how to send the balance for it. Also please check to be sure if you pick a shipping upgrade it's for your country! Also note the costs are calculated by the postal service.

Do you do custom work? How long does it take?

Yes I do, and usually it's 1-2 months to do depending on the time of the year and if I already have orders on my plate. I do try to keep you up to date on the progress and send photos. So ask away! Also note I don't take custom orders during the holiday season due to work overload!

Wholesale availability

I can offer wholesale orders. Message me with your requests and I'll give you a special code for it!

Sizing details

All my sizings are done using the standard US ring sizes. If you order the wrong size, please let me know. You can send it back, and I'll resize it for you. You'll have to cover the shipping costs back to me and return shipping to you, but I'm more than happy to help!

What are the material used in the jewellery?

All the items I make are made in solid metal, not plated. The sterling silver, or .925 silver as some know it as, is 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper which is the classic sterling silver. No rhodium or nickle plating! The antique bronze is the classic bronze that the bronze age was named for. It contains 90% copper and 10% tin. I also offer to make jewellery in stainless steel or gold on special order and are made to order only.

Are there chains included?

Sadly no. The cost of sterling silver and bronze chains would end up raising the price of my jewellery, so in stead I sell them separately on my shop section for chains and engraving.

What is antique bronze? Will it turn my skin? And how do I care for it?

The antique bronze contains 90% copper and 10% tin. The bronze can turn your skin green due to the oxidization caused by the copper to the salt and sweat of your skin, but can be easily rectified with either clear enamel or the classic clear nail polish trick! As for cleaning, use liquid silver cleaner and a jewellers polishing cloth to make it shiny and new again.

How do you ship your jewellery?

I use ChitCats Express for all my shipping, and the prices are based on their prices. They are a courier company that uses USPS, so is cheaper than Canda Post. I rather not use other courier companies like FedEx our UPS because they charge the buyer a brokerage fee on top of duty and that sucks all around! If you would rather use them, let me know and I'll create a custom listing for you.

Will bronze change color?

Because of the copper content in the bronze, it will naturally develop a patina over time. The tarnish, or patina, is caused by a chemical reaction between the various metals in the alloy, and acids or other corrosive materials. Acids in the skin can cause uneven tarnish from contact with your skin. If you want to prevent tarnish, keep your bronze item stored in an area with low humidity and protected from dust and other corrosives and chemicals, like hand cream and house cleaning products. If you are storing the item, make sure it's dry and wrap it in plastic or put it in a plastic bag; the more airtight the better. Bronze can be varnished or lacquered, but this will have to be reapplied over time.

Do you take returns on gold jewellery?

No, as they are custom made per order of the customer request and not a stock item, I cannot accept returns on gold jewellery.
