star sapphire and 14k gold textured shell ring


The Story

Made from 14 karat yellow gold in the form of a keyhole limpet shell, this vintage ring feels like a beach vacation. The piece is based around the replica of a shell measuring 1.11 inches tall. At center is a light blue star sapphire giving the piece an element of water and accenting it beautifully.   

The shell is set on a plain gold band finishing it with a simple and clean look.  

Showing its age in the best way, it has an overall patina that adds to the detailed features and gives further depth and dimension. It looks fantastic on its own or worn with other favorite rings.
