Blackbeard's Helm

Regular price £135.00 - FREE SHIPPING

"The skies darkened, the rain poured, and the seas raged. They could see his silhouette stood at the helm. He was coming straight for them."

Blackbeard was one of the Golden Ages most notorious and ruthless of all pirates, he first grabbed the Helm in 1716 as the first officer of Buccaneer-turned-pirate Captain Benjamin Hornigold of the Mary Anne. Blackbeard and Hornigold were ousted after their crew called for a vote of no confidence in Hornigold for his refusal to attack English ships. The legend of Blackbeard solidified after he took command of the Queen Anne’s Revenge.

This ring is said to be the very Helm that navigated Blackbeard across the rough seas of the Golden Age. The iconic Jolly Roger skull and bones flags were flown to identify a pirate ship was about to attack, a flag that was flown many times during Blackbeards reign as captain. We pay homage to this with the Jolly Roger placed on the inside face of the ring. If you’re a pirate and failed to see the Jolly Roger you’re about to walk the plank. Be sure you see it along with all the rings other glorious details.

Material is 925 Sterling Silver.

What are our Made To Order sizes?

We have a range of different sizes in each ring to help you find one that fits. However, if you don't see your size, simply choose one of our "Made To Order" sizes. and get the size that fits you.

Each "Made To Order" ring will be sent off for production once your order has been processed. From here it will be 5-8 weeks until your order is dispatched. Unfortunatley we cannot guarantee any orders purchased now will arrive in time for Christmas.

Ring sizing is a tricky one. Not everyone knows their ring size and especially around Christmas, Valentine's Day and Birthdays, gifting rings can be awkward as you don't want to get the wrong size.

So, to get around the problem, we offer a "standard size" on all of our Rings and Bracelets, it's the most commonly sold size for our rings. Each Standard Size ring comes with a returns form and a ring sizer, these are so that the giftee can admire the details and intricacy that has gone into their new piece, have the option to amend the size (should they need to) and you get to keep it a surprise!

It's a win/win situation, you get to keep your amazing gift a surprise and the person receiving the gift gets the size they want!
