Spiny Oyster Shell is all the rage in western jewelry - always has been. That pop of color in many Native American pieces is often Spiny Oyster. These Big Spiny Oyster Rings are fabulous ... and what better setting for such a great pop of color than our Boho design. The Boho Ring design looks and feels like it could have been made by a master silversmith from another time and place. Simple, classic design with the .925 Sterling Silver twist wire and double round split shank make it feel like you're sliding on something that someone will still wear in 50 years.

Spiny Oyster was used by Native American artists to make inlays in fine jewelry. It comes from the shell of the bivalve mollusk, Spondylus varius. Like many other bivalve mollusks, the soft, meaty interior of Spondylus is edible, so the Spiny Oyster’s valued for its hard, outer shell as well as its interior meat. Despite its name, the Spiny Oyster’s much more closely related to the scallop than to the true oyster.
