Colorful vintage Mexican handmade shell ring. Not sure what type shell this is, but mostly sure it is a shell? Purchased it due to the unique coloring and stature of the shell plus the primitive hand tooled construction of the ring. The silversmith has use a cut and polished piece of this shell that displays a marine moss green, orange-yellow, and white coloring setting it into a smooth silver bezel. The base appear to maybe have been a small baby's spoon due to the convex shape. The silversmith has continued decorating by wrapping the stone/shell with a strip of twisted sheet silver. The artist mounts the setting to a double round wire band that's soldered together adding a silver drop on each side that fills the gap and adds decoration. Here's the good part! The silversmith then has honed the inside of the band and setting base to create a perfect fit to your finger. The hone and polish has flattened the round wire making it appear as half round and flatten/divot the base of the spoon. Very unique and definitely different from anything I've seen before!

The ring face measures 7/8" by 3/4" across and weighs 7.4 grams. It's a size 6 3/4 and has been stamped STERLING by the silversmith. Really cool and unique ring!  $49.95
