This handcrafted statement ring features a stunning piece of bright-blue Bluebird Turquoise that measures approximately 14mm x 10mm. The ring has been made with a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (1.9mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, and a fine silver bezel setting and three sterling silver ball 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!
I have created this ring in a size 8 (Australian size P 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!

💎 BLUEBIRD 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.
Bluebird Turquoise is mined in Kingman, Arizona, in the United States. It is known for displaying a vivid robin's egg blue colour with a minimal matrix. What little matrix is present tends to be fine and varies from light to dark grey colour, making each stone very unique.
