I love to surf, and really like surf/ocean inspired jewelry and accessories, so when I found this beautiful Longboard Surfboard Ring from Alba Heredia, I thought it was so unique and pretty. This unisex ring comes in a variety of finger sizes, for both men and women, and each made is custom made and hand cast in sterling silver. The ring features a longboard design, including a fin, and wraps around the finger nicely. It's gorgeous! I love the shape, the smooth surface of the ring, and the detail of the surfboard shape. All of Alba's pieces are sterling silver, no cheap gold filled or silver plated jewelry here! Alba's prices are amazing too, all of her jewelry pieces retail for $68 or less. Fabulous prices for quality jewelry. I've seen costume jewelry with higher prices. The craftsmanship is remarkable too. The silver is polished nicely, and I just love looking at the ring on my finger. This is a fun design for any one, but would also make a great gift for surfers!
Alba also creates pretty personalized name jewelry, that are really pretty and are custom stamped with any words or names that you'd like. She also sells surfboard pendants in either a longboard or shortboard shape. She also sells hand beaded cuffs that are lovely and have a pretty native inspired theme. Each of Alba's pieces are made by order, and are made by hand. Alba is also really nice and offers fast shipping. My ring came gift wrapped in a pretty purple gift box, and it only took a few days for me to receive my ring once it was made. Each ring and piece of jewelry is made to order, so the piece can take 2-3 weeks to be created.
Alba puts a lot of love and time into each piece, and the quality is truly wonderful. Alba's been creating jewelry for the past 10 years or so, and I can't wait to see what other jewelry she adds to her show, she's such a true talent. You can check out Alba's designs and purchase her jewelry at her Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/albAHeredia and you can also find Alba on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/albAHerediaHandmadeConceptsAndArt
