Tahitian Keshi Starfish & Shell Ring 12-29-15 February 20 2016

I want to share my newest piece made just for fun, and now in the store. This one is all about the pearl. It is a knarley natural Tahitian keshi. This means that it is a natural occurring pearl, not farmed or cultured. Because the nice ones are so rare and unusual, I saved this one for a long time before committing to a design. For the ring, I used a seashore theme, a starfish and shell with a watery free form band. It was hand carved in wax and cast in 18K gold. The mouth of the shell is stuffed with a 0.04ct. white diamond. The center of the starfish is accented with a 0.015ct. black diamond.
