This handcrafted statement ring features a gorgeous piece of Emerald Valley Turquoise that is the most beautiful shade of bright-blue, covered in a stunning caramel matrix. The stone itself measures approximately 29mm x 12mm, and the ring setting has been made with a solid sterling silver 4.5mm double ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver serrated bezel around the stone, and two molten 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 made 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!

💎EMERALD VALLEY 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.
Emerald Valley Turquoise is mined in Nevada, USA. It is highly regarded for its deep green colour, and is extremely popular with collectors. It is sometimes highlighted by a beautiful copper or brown matrix, which makes Emerald Valley a unique and beautiful variety of turquoise.
