The sterling silver KOI (鯉) ring is part of the SHOGUN collection from Clocks and Colours. If you have any interest in samurai, bushido (武士道), or budō (the way of war), you probably understand why someone might want to wear a koi fish ring.
“According to legend, Koi fish earned their place as symbols of strength and perseverance by swimming upstream for one hundred years, battling against a violent current. Eventually, the Koi became stronger and their determination was bolstered, giving them the ability to jump to the top of a large waterfall that stood in their path. As a reward for their unwavering perseverance, the gods rewarded the Koi by turning them into golden dragons—the ultimate symbol of power and strength.”
Find Clocks and Clours (if not 鯉, then many other things) online at Touch of Modern.
The Koi fish ring is handcrafted from sterling silver. It is available in sizes seven (7) through fourteen (14) in even sizes only and is covered by the Clocks and Colours lifetime warranty.
From the video description:
The tour was off to a hell-of-a start. The Ichi-Bons were bonafide stars back home in Japan, but even they were impressed with the audiences they’d been pulling in on their first American tour. And they were riding in style. Paddy’s greaser cousin had let them borrow his brand-spanking new ’53 Chevy. He’d switched out the V6 for a screaming V8 that barely fit under the hood, and the thing ran like a bat out of hell…until it didn’t. The radiator blew just outside of Lambertville, and the band had to push it all the way to the only garage in this desolate one-horse town. The clock was ticking, and the Ichi-Bons Ed Sullivan debut was starting to look more and more like a pipe dream.
