This handmade Fortune Kitty or Maneki-Neko Ring is created using the lost wax casting method. We carve the design in wax, size it, and then cast in .925 Sterling Silver. Gold is also available. If interested in ordering gold, please email us for pricing and to create a custom order.
The maneki-neko (Japanese: 招き猫?, literally “beckoning cat”) is a common Japanese figurine (lucky charm, talisman) which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed. The maneki-neko is sometimes also called the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat, beckoning cat, or fortune cat in English.
Sterling silver can tarnish over time. We recommend using a flannel polishing cloth to clean the pieces.
Your sterling silver jewelry will come packaged in a metal tin box, perfect as gift wrap and for storage.
As each piece is handmade to order, please allow approximately 10 days for your order to process and ship.
We are happy to do custom pieces as well. Please check out our store for more pieces. We have an ever growing variety of pendants, earrings, rings, bracelets, cufflinks, and belt buckles.
