This is a distinctive handmade silver ring that began as a worn snail shell found on the beach in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. It is the perfect ring for summer or year round wear for the beach lover!

I have collected so many shells and pieces of shells over the years, that I have actually considered taking them back to the beach. Cape Hatteras National Seashore is a wild and beautiful place. It's unusual to find whole shells. Using the shell fragment for the top I sculpted the ring from a block of wax. It is similar but smaller than the large shell ring also in the shop.

The ring is cast from my mold in Sterling Silver. Please select size- your ring will be custom sized before shipping. It is shown with a brushed finish. It will gain character with wear like the shells from the beach it came from.

The dimensions (top profile) are 1/2" x 1/2". Stamped 925 with hallmark. This ring is also available in 18k gold.
