This Alluring Abalone Ring by American designer Charles Albert presents a striking oval of ruby red abalone. A dramatic personal adornment, up the wow factor by pairing it with the matching Necklace, Bracelet and Earrings (item number 46828). An alchemist’s dream, the hypoallergenic metal alloy emulates the look and feel of 18k gold. Color-enhanced abalone shell. (Search for item number 46828 to add the matching necklace, bracelet and earrings.)  Adjustable to self-fit ring sizes 4-11.

Museum Provenance

Our Alluring Abalone Ring celebrates the swirling iridescent beauty of abalone nacre, or mother-of-pearl. Harvested the world over for millennia, Native Americans are known to have gathered abalone on California’s Channel Islands for at least 12,000 years. The many abalone jewelry artifacts in the vast anthropological collections of our National Museum of Natural History attest to the ageless appeal of abalone’s enchanting decorative patterns.

Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
