Prairie Collection - Penalosa Ring

215.00

It’s a baby sunflower! I was so excited to be able to fit the whole entire bud in this ring. I love how you can see all the little petals beginning to grow. The box itself is hollow and entirely constructed form sterling silver sheet. On top is a glass window allowing you a peek inside to view the sunflower. Ring is a size 7 and cannot be adjusted.

  • Common Sunflower: First cultivated by Native Americans, this plant does it all. Sunflower oil is extracted and used for cooking, paints, soaps, and hair oil. The seeds can be eaten and ground as a flour. Purple and black dye can be made from the seeds and yellow dyes from the flowers. Due to it being one of the lightest natural substances, having a specific gravity of 0.028 compared to 0.028 of cork, even the pith of the plant has been used as life preserver filler.
