Ring with a plain, rectangular bezel surrounded by a border of balls and twisted wire. Each shoulder has an applied element in the form of a stylized shell. The shank is plain except for notched decoration in imitation of beaded wire. This extends along the edges of the shoulders and bezel. The ring is very lightweight and made of sheet metal elements.
