These big, dark blue, chunky hoops are a fresh take on a design classic. Rings add instant insouciance to your look and this pair bring an extra layer of individuality and sass. In the deepest oceanic blue, each is carved by hand from tagua nut, a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to animal ivory, by Magdalena of the MYA project in Quito, Ecuador. These are the larger option – select for maximum impact – and come mounted on silver studs.
