This is a vintage sterling silver artisan ring with delicate curling swirl details and a raised sterling setting with a beautiful, iridescent long and thin oval of abalone. The abalone catches the light, reflecting hues of violet, blue, silver, and teal, reminding simultaneously of the glittering ocean or the open, endless wandering sky of the desert.
This ring is a US size 7. The ring face measures 7/8 inch in total length. It is in excellent vintage condition, with age-appropriate wear to the abalone and the sterling. There is some age-appropriate patina to the sterling that can be left if you like the look of it, or polished up and away.
