This vintage Scrimshaw style ring is made of decorated shell and sterling silver. Scrimshaw jewelry has such an interesting history— its roots are as an on-board hobby for eighteenth century whalers with downtime on a fishing vessel. The sailors would take the byproduct of whales (the tooth or bones) and engrave them with sketches, typically ones of a nautical motif. This one is instead made of shell, but int he same style. The shell on this ring has an organically irregular shape, and I love the way the design respects that, resulting in a one-of-a-kind asymmetrical design. It is sterling silver (unmarked but tested). It is approximately a size 6.5. The Vintage Mignon Faget Sterling Silver Ionic Column Ring and other rings pictured are also available
