Sanctified


We’re excited to announce two new additions to the NightRider Jewelry collection – the Sanctified Cuff Bracelet and the Sanctified Slim Cuff Bracelet. Expanding once again on one of our most popular jewelry series, these 925 sterling silver cuff bracelets have been in the works for months. What can we say? Art doesn’t happen overnight. Concept to design, casting to finishing, our exacting standards can’t be rushed. But the hard work is worth it every time because we put out pieces we’re proud of. Case in point — our new Sanctified Cuff bracelets: in two styles, three gemstone options, and sizes to fit just about anyone.

Sanctified Cuff Bracelet

The first is our Sanctified Cuff Bracelet – it’s a beefy solid sterling silver bracelet that’s sure to turn heads. Just choose the size that suits your style; wear it big and bold, or as a sophisticated statement piece – because it’s definitely both. Each cuff is equipped with three stones; the main center gem is a bezel-set, square cut beauty while the two matching gemstones on the flanks are prong set, accenting the banded sides. Make it all yours by choosing from red garnet, black onyx, or moissanite (stay tuned for the forthcoming blue sapphire option!).

Sanctified Slim Cuff Bracelet

The Sanctified Slim Cuff Bracelet is perfect for those wanting to make the same daring statement, just with a lower profile. It may be streamlined, but it retains every bit of that eye-catching style. With a single prominent gemstone front and center, and tapered cuff ends for extra comfort, you may never want to take this silver cuff off. With three gemstone options to choose from, there’s a look that will complement anyone’s personal style. Whether it’s fiery red garnet, mysterious black onyx, or brilliant moissanite, you can make it your own.
And be sure to check back soon, because we plan on adding blue sapphire as one of the jewel options on this style as well.

Of course, these are just the most recent additions to the Sanctified line from NightRider.
We’ve continually added to the series since the debut of the first Sanctified Ring because it’s consistently been one of our most sought-after designs. From the first ring in 2013, to the Sanctified Tapered Ring, to the Trigger Bracelet and Wallet Chain, the Cufflinks, and Latch Buckle – it’s easy for anyone to achieve a sophisticated and pulled-together look that will impress. Whether you coordinate them all, or mix and match with other great pieces, you know that your signature style will be shining through.

A SHORT HISTORY OF SANCTIFIED

The original design process for the first ring was pretty off the beaten track for NightRider at the time. Inspired by an ongoing spiritual exploration and journey of self-discovery, it was lead designer Nick Ballantyne’s first foray into more freeform design – free of the conceptual symbolism that usually drives his work. Instead, he let his creativity flow unrestrained. What emerged was a combination of soft organic lines paired with symmetrical geometrics to form a pattern that spoke to him.

We knew the ring was unique, and we knew that such an abstract design would evoke very different feelings in different people. Plus, it was somewhat of a departure from the themes of our other work. How would it be received and interpreted? We had no idea – but we were about to find out, because it was time for it to make its debut on the big stage.

You see, at this point we still had no name for either the ring or the design itself. Here at the shop, it was simply known as NTR – Name This Ring. Because from the very beginning, this unique ring was designed for 2013 Name This Ring contest, an annual NightRider event on social media where we ask our fans, old and new, to name the piece for posterity. Of all the wonderful name submissions, one stood out and won the votes of the public – Sanctified.

As it turns out, people loved it. It was followed quickly by the Sanctified Tapered ring, a slightly sized-down version with a narrower band. Both proved popular, and we soon realized that we’d hit a chord; the Sanctified ring, when paired with the Sanctified Tapered version had become a favorite choice for alternative his & hers wedding bands. Now that’s a high compliment by any standards!

As we continue to be inspired by the overall Sanctified reception, we’re driven to design and create more. With the series now containing two cuff bracelets, two rings, a coordinating chain bracelet, a wallet chain, cufflinks, plus belt buckle… what would you like to see next?
