Unusual Carved Coral and Wood Ring
This ring is a real departure from the average coral jewel, and organic in every way. A magnificently detailed carving of an open mouthed heroic individual - we suspect it's either the Greek god Zeus or Poseidon, but hesitate to say for sure - sits atop a hand worked shank of lightweight wood. The facial features are in deep relief and create a particularly expressive visage, measuring 1" from top to bottom. An interesting melding of a wonderful Victorian coral carving and the unusual choice of wood as a ring base, it's great on a man's hand, or the middle finger of a woman's hand.
