Gorgeous, colorful vintage abalone shell set in sterling silver. Setting is surrounded two times around with sterling silver beaded wire. Ring has been oxidized to bring out details.
This colorful abalone seashell contains the spectrum of color found in the sea. Though not a crystal, it possesses metaphysical and healing properties. An element of nature and connected with water it contains vibrations of peace, love, beauty, caring, compassion, and kindness.
The ring band has been given a tree bark like texture, symbolizing the wisdom of trees and hearkening to observations made by Leonardo Da Vinci regarding the mathematical precision involved in the natural cycle of tree growth. Like trees, each of us is perfect in our natural born state and we hold all of the wisdom of the universe within ourselves.
The inside of the band is stamped with the word " SALTWATER".
"The cure for anything is salt water ~ sweat, tears or the sea." ~ Isak Dinesen
