A masterpiece ring, painstakingly hand carved by a master carver onto a rare Batulaga Shell, accented with 24K gold leaf. The ring has been decorated with a blooming flower atop, with an amethyst centre and diamond studded leaves. The ring has been lined with a fine selection of amethysts.

Lotus Arts de Vivre has an extremely skilled shell carving master, who being nearly 80 years old, has been carving shells for over 5 decades. The carving of shells required extreme diligence, currently found as a lost art in Asia. Carvers are specialists - they either carve wood or coconut or stone or shells and each need special tools. Each material bears different risks and opportunities and requires particular skills to deal with the material. This master produces miracles of carving with extreme detail, bringing the shells almost back to life. These Batulaga shells are extremely infrequent to find especially in this size, where they naturally occur in the tropical reefs in the Indian Ocean.

In the ancient Kingdoms of the Far East carved shells like these were reserved for the Royal Palaces and the Courts, often in forms of gifts or as Jewelry. The cold waters in the west produced few shells and hardly any pearls, this availability crunch made these shells prized western possessions as well.
This ring took more than 2 months to complete with more than 9 craftsmen and designers involved a true testimony of creating “Masterpiece” of art.
