"By The Book" because this is the classic, American design for a turquoise ring. Why argue with the best? Especially in Beautiful, Sonoran, Nacozari Turquoise -- just gorgeous, blue, matrixy turquoise with outstanding markings -- 15mm X 20mm. All Silversmithing done in my Kensington, MD studio. Split shank in .925 Sterling Silver. Hand made and silver set in my studio.
Stone will vary slightly but be substantially similar and beautiful.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.
All jewelry designs are created using natural gemstones. There will be some natural variation in the jewelry. Our best is done to represent colors and markings in our photos.
