Alexandra Vali began her career as a ceramic artist but found her true passion when she was introduced to metal. Her contemporary De'Solanum Ring, which is 1.25" x 1.0" x 0.75", is handmade from Oxidized or Sandblasted Sterling Silver and is available with a White or Black Freshwater Pearl. The surface of the unique ring is protected with Rhodium to improve tarnish and scratch resistance. According to Alexandra, "solanum is an omen of good fortune and is also an emblem of love and affection. In nature, Solanum blooms out in just a couple days, but your Silver Solanum will remind you of spring all year round." Note that the color of the Black Freshwater Pearl may vary from shades of purple to blue.
