This elegant ring is a sinuous Art Nouveau-style representation of kelp, a large seaweed in the brown algae group. Distinguishing the design are the blades along the top of the ring, the stipes (stems) along the bottom and the gas bladders (pneumatocysts) that keep the algae afloat in kelp forests. Kelp forests are an important ecosystem at the shallower depths of the ocean, giving shelter and providing food to many other organisms. In the Monterey Bay of California, egrets stand on the top of kelp forests to fish, and sea otters munch on urchins and other invertebrates that would otherwise devour and destroy the kelp.
Due to the width of the band of this ring (slightly more than 1cm), I suggest you order one half size larger than your normal size for the most comfortable fit. The best way to measure your size is to either visit a jeweler or use a ring sizer.
The ring is 3D printed in solid sterling silver, and is ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.
