There is a delicate and striking combination of oxidised (blackened) sterling silver and high shine of the talon. This ring was handmade in Greenville, North Carolina. Care instructions: May be stored with other silver jewellery. To prevent further oxidation, store with chalk. To bring back a high shine, use an old soft shirt and rub the talons or you may take it to your local jewellery repair shop to have the ring buffed and polished. Your order will be packaged in an Eilisain gift box and a hand screen-printed gift bag.
