You could certainly re-imagine an hourglass made of block-shapes rather than conical ones, but I'm not sure it would be as effective for telling time. This ring, however, is quite effective at showing off these two blocky, clear carnelian stones!
These stones are channel set, which means they're held in place by silver 'walls' on either side. All those straight lines are complemented by a round and shiny silver band.
Size US 7.75
sterling silver, carnelian
Carnelian is a particular kind of agate that comes in translucent colors from yellow to red to brown. The deep warm color is caused by iron oxide mixed in with the clear silica found in all types of agate.
