The Concept

Miglior Fabbro™ is a collection of rings inspired by literature.

Each ring is designed to reflect a specific character, taking into consideration the era, style, personality, colors, and essential attributes associated with that character in the novel. Like the stories that inspired them, Miglior Fabbro™ rings are classics. The designs are simple and the materials are of the highest quality. They are made to endure; to be passed down from generation to generation. Nothing is plated, nothing is fake. Our rings are made to mean something to you, so that their value only increases the longer you wear them.

The Italian phrase Miglior Fabbro means "The Better Craftsman."

It comes from the The Waste Land, which T. S. Eliot dedicated to his friend and editor Ezra Pound, calling him "il miglior fabbro". (Eliot actually borrowed the phrase from Dante, who used it first in the Divine Comedy.) As the big history of this little phrase implies, there is a clear and longstanding analogy between the writer and the craftsman--both are smiths, whose skill lies in creating a unified work of art out of raw material, whether that material is the written word or molten gold.

Miglior Fabbro™ is dedicated to empowering a new generation of readers.

Underlying the very concept of Miglior Fabbro™ is the belief that literature enhances reality; glittering even in darkness and illuminating the beauty in everyday life. Reading stimulates the imagination, opens vistas onto far-flung places, creates opportunities get swept away, or perhaps to find yourself. For many children and young adults, literature offers a diversity that their neighborhood does not. Tragically, today, even as basic literacy rates have risen, literary reading is in steep decline--a growing national concern with serious implications in civic, social, cultural, and economic spheres.

To help ensure the future of literary culture, 10% of all Miglior Fabbro™ profits go to Reading Is Fundamental, a national literacy organization that provides free books and resources to those who need them most.
