Bezel set cow horn sits nestled between two thin solid brass lines in this elegant ring. The ring's open design makes it at once bold and fantastically lightweight and wearable. Like all of the jewelry in our Kenyan Brass Collection, this bauble beautifully blends traditional techniques and materials with innovative modern design concepts.

This is special because...
Transforming bone and horn into objects of use is a time-honored African tradition. The raw material comes from the Ankole cows, native to Africa and raised for food. The horn, which can weigh 1600 pounds and span 8', is boiled until malleable and shaped into handsome wares like this one.
Handmade in Kenya in partnership with the Anganza Community Project in Nairobi's Kibera Slum, which trains jewelry-making skills and provides income generation for disadvantaged women.
