This handcrafted statement ring a gorgeous piece of pale blue Dry Creek Turquoise, that measures approximately 20mm x 12mm, and the ring itself has been made with a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (2.5mm) hammered ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver bezel setting and a sterling silver twisted trim. The ring has then been sanded, oxidized 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 1/4 - 8 1/2 (Australian sizes Q - Q 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
Total Ring Face Length: 18mm approx.
Total Ring Face Width: 20mm approx.
💎 DRY CREEK TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors.
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.
Dry Creek Turquoise comes from a small Turquoise mine outside of Austin, Nevada in Lander County. It is not treated or colour enhanced and is revered for its light whitish - blue Turquoise color. Dry Creek Turquoise has gained much popularity over the years with its creamy white or pale blue colouring, and golden to cocoa brown matrix. High grade Dry Creek Turquoise has beautiful light brown, golden yellow or orange webbed matrix. Dry Creek Turquoise is also referred to as "Sacred Buffalo" Turquoise.
