This Whale Silver Wrap Ring is designed by the Native American Artist Richard Krentz from the Coast Salish Nation.
The Orca or Killer Whale symbolizes family, romance, longevity, harmony, travel, community and protection. He is said to protect those who travel away from home, and to lead them back when the time comes. Orcas will often stay their whole life with the same pod and raise each calf with care.
