Ring, Statement, Purple Spiny Oyster, Hallmark, Contemporary, 732
STATEMENT RINGS ARE BIG RIGHT NOW – IN EVERY SENSE.
Southwest silversmith Freddie Maloney continues to craft his silverwork in the classic style as taught to him by his mentor, Harry Morgan. This pretty piece is centered by a statement-sized slab of polished purple spiny oyster with some stunning striations and color gradients. The ring is designed in Maloney’s signature style, with the stone set in a simple bezel, framed in twist wire detailing, and accented on either side by fluted sterling silver drops. This ring will be impossible to ignore and certain to be a conversation starter! Stone color will vary.
