Nine Lives: Heavy – 9 tiny bones of perfection framed by a heavy weight stack.
High shine, with the devil in the detail & made for stacking… its just a necessity at this point.
This design comes in at just over 9mm with the bone detailing being approximately 6.5mm in width.
Framed perfectly by the shiniest silver Heavy Stack.
An old English proverb of unknown origin directly references the idea of cats having nine lives. It says: “A cat has nine lives. For three he plays, for three he strays, and for the last three he stays.”
No one knows for sure where the idea came from, but many historians recognise that this saying has been around for hundreds of years.
One theory is that this association originated in ancient Egypt where cats were revered as divine creatures with psychic or supernatural powers.
Atum-Ra, a sun god, who assumed a feline form when he visited the underworld, gave life to four gods who, in turn, produced another four, known collectively as the Ennead.
The Egyptians regarded Atum-Ra, the cat god, as the embodiment of nine lives in one form.
Thomas Fuller claims in Gnomologia: Adagies and Proverbs (1732) that ‘a cat has nine lives, and a woman has nine cat’s lives’.
The idea of nine lives has also been mentioned in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet (Act 3:1).
