Description

The unusual shape of this beautiful ring emphasizes the skill of the artist and the technique of channel inlay. He has meticulously shaped each stone to precisely fit the tiny sterling silver channels on the surface of the ring. The various stones of turquoise, purple spiny oyster and orange spiny oyster are a perfect complement to each other. The orange spiny oyster has dark bands running through the shell, which hints of the purple spiny oyster.  These reflections of color beautifully enhance the stones. The edges are banded by tiny sterling silver beads. This beading is reflected on each side of the band of the ring. This is a beautiful and elegant long ring.

Condition: Excellent – original – new.
Provenance: Purchased from another gallery.
