• Image of Sterling Silver Black Spinel Ring // Lauren Wolf

This striking ring features a sparkling faceted black spinel set in an octagonal, prong-adorned bezel, measuring 5 mm in diameter. A rustic, gently hammered oxidized sterling silver band is the perfect earthy counterpoint to this glittering jewel.

The Bay Area designer, Lauren Wolf, is inspired by natural forms, and many of her pieces mimic the organic textures of ocean life. She studied the art of jewelry design in Mexico before opening her studio in Oakland, and the influence of both environments can be seen in her work, which maintains a perfect balance of edginess and elegance.
