Berlin Wall Ring

Berlin Wall Ring



Our Berlin Wall Ring has an amazing texture all around the band and is a reminder that it's best to break down barriers and walls. Inspired by the famous Berlin Wall, here are some interesting facts.


-The Berlin Wall separated East & West Berlin from 1961-1989 (28 years)

-The Wall symbolized division and control.

-The Wall was built without prior warning so people didn’t have time to cross before it closed off

-The Wall was 96 miles

-There were 302 watchtowers, 20 bunkers, 55,000 land mines, 259 dog runs, and machine guns that were activated by tripwires. 

-When the wall was first built, only those with genuine documents were allowed to cross at the checkpoints. 

-In 1987, president Reagan in his speech at the Brandenburg Gate demanded the Wall to be destroyed.

-There was no government order to bring down the wall. On November 9th, 1989, Günter Schabowski who was the government spokesman is said to have read his notes wrongly during a press conference that led to masses flooding to the Wall.
