The natural striations of the spiny oyster shell give depth to this traditional material that looks like a semiprecious stone, but is actually organic. A beaded sterling silver frame highlights the deep red-orange shell. Handcrafted in New Mexico by Navajo silversmith Art Platero.

This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
