The lustrous, dark, iridescent mother-of-pearl is striped with inlaid bands of natural, red coral; both set into an undulating tapered form. Straight lines and graceful curves form a felicitous tension, in an interesting ring by this always inventive young jeweler. Eric comes by his talent naturally – he is a grandson of Ben and Felicita Eustace, and a son of innovative award-winner Jolene Eustace. HIs own prize-winning style has always been contemporary, but lately demonstrates a new finesse and grace, as seen in this unique ring.The iridescent mother of pearl changes with the light, from flashing against darkness, like the northern lights, to bright and flat, like the sun on water. Solid red coral bands provide a textural contrast, as does the textured, toothed bezel. A grouping of silver domes decorate each side of the ring, at top and bottom. These add their own gleam to the piece. A simple, double-band shank finishes off this attractively modern, asymmetrical ring. It is light on the finger and very comfortable to wear, by the way. (We consumer- test the pieces we buy.)The paisley-like form and materials are traditional; the design is modern, the workmanship is wonderful, and the ring is really unique, as well as wearable.
