This handcrafted statement ring is the perfect heirloom piece, and features four stunning stones; three pieces of genuine Number 8 Turquoise that are each gorgeous shades of blue, and aqua and are filled with a rich brown spider web matrix, and one lovely piece of Moonstone that has a hint of a blue flash in the light. The setting has been made with a solid sterling silver split-shank ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezel settings around each stone, and sterling silver trims and accents. The ring has then been sanded, oxidised in parts for contrast and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand, using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!
Total Ring Face Length: approx. 48mm
Total Ring Face Width: approx. 20mm
I have created this ring in a size 11 1/4 (Australian size W), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
💎 NUMBER 8 TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. Among the Ancient Egyptians, Persians and Chinese, Aztecs and Incas of South America, and Native North Americans, Turquoise was sacred in its adornment and for power, luck, and protection.
Wearing Turquoise is said to bring strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and good fortune. It is a symbol of friendship, aids wearers while traveling and brings peace to the home.
The Number 8 Turquoise mine is in the Lynn mining district in Eureka County, Nevada. It's famous for its black, golden red and brown spider web matrix set off with the unique bright powder blue turquoise background. The mine has now been depleted, and for this reason Number 8 Turquoise is considered to be extremely valuable.
