Introducing new rings made from cactus skeleton - the perfect desert-inspired blend of organic and timeless. These rings are crafted from the unique structure of prickly pear cactus skeletons, giving them a distinctive look that allows you to perfectly express yourself.
Each of these two new botanical rings captures the essence of the desert and its natural beauty. Each desert-inspired ring is carefully handmade, resulting in the perfect blend of craft, elegance, and natural beauty.
The low profile oval signet cactus ring is a simple representation of the cactus skeleton pattern framed with a square wire border. A simple band wraps around the back of the finger for comfort and wearability. I think of this ring as an amulet; when I wear it I feel protected, strong, and connected to the greater world around me.
The cactus skeleton solitaire ring elevates the cactus skeleton pattern with a tapered design that culminates in a gorgeous center gemstone. This ring is a unique special gift (for yourself even!). It expresses individuality and creativity, with a nod to the traditional solitaire ring design.
If you're interested in customizing these cactus rings, just contact me. I can discuss different faceted gemstones, specific sizing, and different precious metal choices. The solitaire ring would make a wonderful non-traditional engagement ring for the Southwestern desert lover. Go with a diamond or moissanite center stone or a colored gemstone like ruby or sapphire, and choose gold, white gold or silver as your metal. I'd love to work with you to customize this desert engagement ring!
These botanic rings are timeless, unique, and most importantly, they help support ethical and sustainable small business. The cactus skeletons are harvested by hand by me, Tucson artist Clare Johnston on my Tucson, Arizona property, and then lost wax cast into recycled sterling silver or gold.
These botanical rings are perfect for adding a touch of Southwest charm to your wardrobe, and they make great gifts for anyone who loves the outdoors and nature. As a part of Lila Clare's Desert Botanic Collection, these pieces help you wear your love of the desert!
