A ring made from beautiful pieces of abalone set into pewter silver alloy (tin with small amounts of other metals, but no lead or nickel). This ring is slightly adjustable by carefully widening or narrowing it. It will polish well with a cloth.
Please be aware that colours may vary slightly as each piece is individually created.
The ring comes attractively presented in a recycled card box with a leaflet explaining where the jewellery is from.
Handcrafted by a woman’s co-operative near Taxco in Mexico – the jewellery is their only source of income. In 2013 we visited the women, met their families, saw them working and learnt what this source of income means to them.
