Samurai ring- Jewels Japan

Samurai Ring

The ring motif comes from the armor worn by the samurai warriors during the battle. After many trials and errors, we came upon this ring collection with a Japanese samurai style.

What is a Samurai?

For 400 years, between the “warring states” and the Edo period, people with long swords and skilled in martial arts served the Daimyo (feudal lords). There warriors were called Samurai, and had their own philosophy and set of principles called “Bushido”. Thoughts like, “risking one’s life in one's action & responsibility”, “serve your duty by betting your own life”, “be prepared to give life away on any failure” were part of the Samurai way.

Although “Chivalry” is a similar concept to “Bushido” in the West, it is devoid of the idea of taking entire responsibility by risking one’s life. “Bushido" or taking responsibility by abandoning one’s life is an idea inherently unique to the Samurai.

 Samurai’s popularity overseas

Nowadays, the Samurai concept is very popular around the world, to the point that for many people it is the first thing they can think of when thinking about Japan. It seems like the unique ideas embodied in “Bushido” have seized the hearts of people worldwide. It is considered distinctive of Japan's manner and thoughts, which many find to be "Cool".
