The lion is a symbol of courage and strength. He is truly the King of the Jungle. The Archangel symbolizes protection from evil. The lion, with his baby in his mouth, symbolizes the act of taking care of one's family, protecting the weak, the young and the innocent.
The pair of wings with a sword in the center symbolizes freedom and physical strength and the pair of wings with the brush in the center symbolizes creativity, intellectual and spiritual balance.
Underneath the ring is engraved "E Pluribus Unum" meaning, "Out of many, one." This ring is designed for the man who graces life with great strength and courage.

About the Capitan Collection:
These rings were created to salute the captain in every man. A “captain” is defined as a leader, a person who takes charge. He is the one who protects, who enters the unknown first for the benefit of crew or clan and does so with dedication and love.
These are men's rings that celebrate the most important elements in a man's life: Loyalty, Beauty, Wisdom, Honor, Family, Hope, Strength and Love. The inspiration for my designs came from ancient Japanese Samurai swords maker, Unno Moritoshi.
Years ago, I saw an exhibit of such artifacts at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. I was moved by the strength, love and dedication it took to create these instruments. So much artistry was required to decorate these swords--swords of honor yet also weapons of war and death--with delicately inlaid symbols.
Today, each ring in The Capitan Collection contains small elements and talismans that are forged, like the ancient swords that came before them, into deeply oxidized Sterling silver and 14k yellow gold.
With each ring, a legend is told and unfolds. And yet, like most good tales, the story of a man's life continues as the Universe moves forward. This is the never-ending story, the beauty of Life in all its mysteries. This is what I give you with The Capitan Collection.
