This handcrafted statement ring features a stunning piece of blue Kingman Turquoise with an incredible black matrix. The stone itself measures approximately 16mm x 9mm. It 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 sterling silver 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, environmentally-friendly methods and cruelty-free materials!
I have created this ring in a size 11 1/2 (Australian size W 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
Total Ring Face Length: 21mm approx.

💎KINGMAN 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.
The Kingman Turquoise Mine is one of the oldest and highest producing Turquoise Mines in America. It is located in the Acerbate Mountains 14 miles northwest of Kingman, Arizona in the United States. It was originally discovered well over 1000 years ago and was actually part of a Turquoise boom around 1000 AD when the Mayan culture was using a lot of Turquoise for self adornments and ceremonial items.
