Founded by Vancouver-based self-taught designer Austin McMahon, when it comes to the contemporary jewellery landscape, Maple stand alone. Inspired by the teals and blues of Vancouver Bay, Maple construct their unique pieces utilising inherited craftsmanship techniques combined with robust and durable materials. Rather than buckling to seasonal trends, the Canadian jewellery-makers slowly add and modify their pieces, with new collections occurring incrementally over years, not weeks.
Maple’s solid sterling silver rings have become a signature for the label, forming the backbone of their collections. Thanks to McMahon’s self-taught design pedigree, Maple rings display a wide range of influences, from motorcycle culture to art-deco design principles.
What we now call the ‘peace sign’ was in fact designed in 1958 as a symbol for the British nuclear disarmament movement. It was later adopted by the anti-war movement in the US, from this context it spread, eventually becoming the universal symbol of peace that we know today.
A store favourite at Double Double and a classic piece from the Vancouver-based label, the Maple Peace Ring takes the form of a classic signet ring, with the peace sign taking the place of an inset stone. Black-tinted recesses give the symbol depth. Crafted from the highest quality sterling silver 925, this piece also features Maple branding and hallmarking on the inside.
Made from Sterling Silver (925).
