Turtle Charming Ring
This turtle charming ring is made of 925 Sterling Silver and the design is inspired by the baby sea turtles running towards the ocean for the first time.
Turtle hatchlings appear fragile and weak, but are actually super strong! Once they hatch out of their egg shells at 40 – 50cm depth of almost two months compacted sand, they emit noises to wake up their siblings and stimulate their hatching.
Hatchlings open their egg shells from the inside with a small, temporary tooth on their snout, which falls off shortly afterward. Slowly, their still from the egg form rounded carapace straightens, and once most of the hatchlings are out of their shells, they all start moving their forth and hind flippers to move sand layer after sand layer towards the bottom of the nest.
Because their mother forms a boot-like nest chamber, their way to the surface is not a straight line to the surface, but at an angle already directed towards the ocean. It requires strong team-work and can take 5 days to complete, during which they don’t breathe, but absorb the rest of their yolk sack attached by an umbilical to their abdomen.
Once at the surface, hatchlings orientate themselves by the slope of the beach, and the sound and spray of the breaking waves. This is when their final run begins, pumping enough blood into their flippers and strengthening their muscles to be able to swim and reach a current that takes them far away from the predators at the coast.
With the purchase of this baby sea turtle ring, you are directly contributing to the continuous protection of Black, Olive Ridley, and Hawksbill Turtle nests monitored by Equipo Tora Carey and the successful release of thousands of sea turtle babies into the ocean.
