Big Blue Paua Shell Stacking Ring in Antiqued Hammered Sterling Silver - 8mm Round Abalone Shell Ring
8mm Paua Shell Stacking Ring in Antiqued Hammered Sterling Silver - Abalone Shell Ring
These naturally iridescent shells have always reminded me of gorgeous blue morpho butterfly wings. To create this ring, I set a dyed, cut, and hand-polished paua (abalone) shell onto a hammered sterling silver band, and finish with a light antiqued patina to add detail and depth. It's pretty enough to be worn alone, or as part of a stacking set.
Shell measures 8mm (just over 1/3 inch) in diameter and is set in a solid, nickel-free, sterling silver band.
The same care should be taken when wearing paua shell jewelry as with pearls. Avoid any exposure to conditions that might dry out the shell, such as hot water or chemicals. Like pearls, paua shells can dehydrate with heat, which results in cracking or splitting.
