Fossil Crinoid Ring, Size 8
A unique and beautiful fossil crinoid cabochon, featured in a sterling silver statement ring. Its pink and black patterning is incredible and it would be suitable for everyday wear if you have bold style, or just when you want to splash out and make a unique statement. Treat yourself and this may become your go-to power ring! It would also make a really OOAK gift for someone special.
Crinoids were sea animals related to starfish, sea urchins, and brittle stars and were an ancient fossil group that first appeared in the seas of the Middle Cambrian, about 300 million years before dinosaurs. They flourished in the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic, and some survive to the present day.
SETTING: The stone has a simple and clean-lined sterling and fine silver bezel setting. That is soldered to a textured, solid and very comfortable sterling band.
SIZE: The stone is 38mm x 25mm (1 1/2" x 1") and the band is about 6mm (1/4") wide. The ring is a size 8. I can enlarge it up to one size.
FINISH: The silver has a lovely grey patina.
