This handcrafted Turquoise statement ring features a stunning piece of bright-blue Kingman Turquoise with the most incredible pattern across the stone that almost resembles an aerial view of the ocean. The stone itself measures approximately 11mm x 12mm, and the ring setting has been made with a solid sterling silver 5.5mm thick floral ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver bezel around the stone, and a sterling silver twisted trim. 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 8 (Australian size P 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
💎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.
