This handcrafted, sterling silver cowrie shell ring will bring you much pleasure to wear and will be a welcome addition to your ring collection. This lovely shell ring is hallmarked the the 925 symbol which is the international symbol for sterling silver.

The band at the back is open so the ring can be adjusted to fit from approx a size L to size P, so would be a great fit for most average sized hands.

Approx 2.5cm in diameter. The ring is oval shaped and due to the natural shell there is a lot of variation in colour in each ring, from quite dark brown to fairly pale with darker spots, please feel free to call me if you would like to see further pictures prior to ordering, or state your preferences in notes when you place your order.

The cowrie shells beautiful glossy, almost china like shell have attracted mankind for thousands of years. Primitive people used them as ornaments, money and even as religious symbols. They are often viewed as symbolising womanhood, fertility, birth and wealth!

I met a lady recently who was using a whole cowrie shell to pop inside socks when she was darning them.

The polished shell from the cowrie makes divine jewellery and looks especially good with sterling silver.

This 925 sterling silver cowrie shell ring is made from the Tiger Cowrie from the Indo Pacific Area where it is commonly available.
