Bronze ring inspired by historical models from the 16th century AD.

The Tudor rose motif was widely used as decoration in all areas of everyday life during the Renaissance and was often found on jewellery, metalwork, stone reliefs, wallpaper and many other objects.

The Tudor rose is an image of two roses, the red Lancastrian rose and the white Yorkshire rose. This coat of arms was introduced by Henry Tudor when he defeated his rival Richard at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.

This brought a definitive end to the 30-year War of the Roses between the rival English noble houses of York and Lancaster.
Henry married Elizabeth of York to unite the warring factions and become King of England, thus uniting the two families into the House of Tudor.

The rose is 2,5 cm in diameter. The ring is adjustable and can be adjusted to any ring size.
