Chalice Well Ring (Sterling Silver) Made by Peter Stone Jewellery
About the Chalice Well
The Chalice Well (also commonly known as 'The Red Spring' is a well based in Glastonbury, Somerset and is now a well known symbol associated with healing.
Christian mythology suggests that the Chalice Well marks the site where Joseph placed the chalice that caught the drops of Christ's blood at his Crucifixion, linking the Chalice Well to the wealth of speculation surrounding the existence of the Holy Grail. The reddish tint of the water is also attributed to the rusty iron nails used at the Crucifixion.
In Pagan Mythology the Chalice Well is often portrayed as a symbol of the female aspect of the sacred deity, with the male symbolized by the nearby Glastonbury Tor. The Chalice Well is a popular destination for modern Pagan pilgrims in search of divine feminine power and inspiration.
In Welsh and Irish mythology the Chalice Well represents a gateway to the spirit world, represented by the design of the Chalice Well cover. The two interlocking circles constitute the symbol known as the Vesica Piscis, a design based on ancient and intuitive symbolism. The two interconnected spheres of this design are divided by a sword (thought to represent Excalibur, King Arthur’s legendary sword, believed to be buried nearby at the Glastonbury Abbey), and surrounded by local foliage revered for its midwinter flowering.

The Peter Stone Company purchases raw silver and produces their own true .925 sterling silver alloy in their own factory. All rings are cast to size and craftsmen cut and inlay each stone for a perfect fit. Every piece of jewellery created is hand polished not tumble polished, which leads to a high quality finish that is noticeably different.
Peter Koslowski had been working on merchant ships since 1983 while living in Sri Lanka and was fortunate to be exposed to an abundance of precious stones and he began to purchase and trade them, as well as silver. During this period he also studied gemology and jewellery making in a number of countries. This then lead to the founding of the Peter Stone Company in 1992 in Bangkok, Thailand, where he still resides.
- Mystical, spiritual, spirit connection
The chalice well is famously located at the foot of Glastonbury Tor in the town of Glastonbury in Somerset, England. The ancient well has been in existence for thousands of years – archaeological research suggests at least 2,000 years – and the water continues to thrive in the well today.
The symbol associated with the chalice well is that of two interlocking circles (also known as Vesica Piscis) – the same symbol that appears on the cover of the chalice well itself. There are a lot of myths and legends associated with the well, which are of huge significance to many people.
The Excalibur, the sword of King Arthur, is believed to be buried in the nearby ruins of Glastonbury Abbey. Along with the interlocking circles on the chalice well lid, a sword is shown bisecting the circles and many people believe this to be related to King Arthur.
According to Christian mythology, the chalice well was the spot where Joseph of Arimathea put a chalice that had drops of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion blood in it. The water in the well is slightly red in colour, so some stories say this represents the rusty iron nails used in the crucifixion.
Wells are also a big element of Irish and Welsh mythology and are believed to be access points to the spirit world. Some people believe that the chalice well cover represents how the inner and outer world overlap.
Whatever your belief about the chalice well, wearing jewellery with this symbol, or having items in your home with the symbol featured on, can help strengthen your mystical or spiritual beliefs and help you feel connected to the symbol.
