The distinctive feature of the HOG ring is the word "HOG" engraved on it. Before being cast in sterling silver, the ring is first created in wax, allowing for intricate details and customization. The word "HOG" is hand-pressed into the wax master using old typewriter keys, adding a touch of vintage charm and nostalgia to the design. This process ensures that each ring possesses its own distinct character and personality.
The word "HOG" carries different connotations and meanings, offering a versatile interpretation to the wearer. "High on the hog" is an idiomatic expression that refers to a state of prosperity or living in luxury. It implies enjoying the finer things in life. The phrase "you're a hog" can be seen as a playful reference to someone who indulges in excess or is fiercely determined. Additionally, "hog" can also refer to a motorcycle, specifically a Harley-Davidson, known colloquially as a "hog." Thus, the ring sparks curiosity and conversation, inviting interpretations and personal connections.
Whether you appreciate the symbolic meaning, resonate with the vintage aesthetic, or simply love the craftsmanship of this unique piece, the HOG ring in sterling silver by Ali Alexander is sure to make a bold statement and add a touch of individuality to your style.
