This is a very comfortable ring to wear as the shank offsets from the center on each side and the abalone stone sits fairly flat, yet the overall look is quite large. The silvertone ring measures 5/8 inch side to side and 7/8 inch from top to bottom. The smooth finish genuine abalone shell is surrounded by an Aztec-looking pattern that has been antiqued to highlight the design. There are eight genuine marcasite stones hand set into the design around the outside of the center stone to add just a touch of shine. In polished rhodium plated brass the ring will surely get you compliments every time you wear it, and it is a perfect ring for almost any age. The abalone shell will vary slightly with each ring as it is a natural stone.
