Hand carved New Zealand argillite stone, on a blackened silver shank.
Ball size is 2.2cm diameter, ring size is L1/2 (US 6).
The size and weight of this ring, along with its design, means it is intended to "flop" on the finger from side to side. You will be aware of it, and this is part of the artist's intention. It should fit fairly tightly to minimise movement, but movement cannot be eliminated.
