Design: An eagle design spans across two sides of this sterling silver ring and is made by artist, Morgan Asoyuf from the Ts'msyen Nation.
"This is my signature box ring style and represents the Eagle clan people." - Ts'msyen artist, Morgan Asoyuf
Eagles symbolize strength, wisdom and balance.
Black diamonds are channel set in the eagle's view. This piece has been treated with a blackened patina. The deeper carved areas take on the blackened effect and the higher polished surfaces shine, creating stellar contrast and impact.
