This shell, hand cut and etched 100+ years ago to be worn in the hair has incredible presence, patina and wear.  The sterling is the superb work of our silversmith, Jacob, who has set the shell perfefectly to follow the curve of the shell which hugs the finger so comfortably.   The cuts and etches are modern art made by the people which makes it pure art.
