Depicting the image of a crow with a fierce gaze, this cocktail ring is handmade of sterling silver with a bold combination of finishes. Balinese artisan Dewa Arimbawa designs the ring after the guak, which is a traditional decorative carving placed at the corners of Balinese homes. A guak typically depicts a crow with a triangular beak and teeth. The artisan accents the ring with beautiful curling motifs.
