This handcrafted statement ring features three gorgeous stone: two beautiful pieces of King's Manassa Turquoise, and a stunning piece of Wild Horse Magnesite. The ring setting has been made with a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (2.5mm) double ring split-band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone, and sterling silver trims and 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 9 to 9 1/4 (Australian size R 1/2 to S), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
Total Ring Face Length: approx. 40mm
Total Ring Face Width: approx. 28mm
💎 KING'S MANASSA 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.
Kings Manassa turquoise is mined at Manassa in south central Colorado. It was originally called the Lickskillet Mine, and was one of the first Turquoise deposits found in Colorado and the Southwest as well. The Manassa mine is believed to first have been mined by the Anasazi / Ancient Pueblo Indians. It is known for its blue-green to green colour with a golden or brown, non-webbed matrix.
💎 WILD HORSE MAGNESITE LORE:
Wild Horse is the name given to the stone that is actually a mixture of Magnesite and Hematite. It is a fairly new stone that was discovered in the mid-90’s near the Globe copper mine in the Gila wilderness area of southern Arizona. Wild Horse is considered to be quite rare, as there is only one known source for the stone. This, paired with it’s well regarded beauty, means that the stone retains a high value and is a remarkably popular with collectors.
In terms of properties, Wild Horse is considered to be wonderful for boosting creativity, helping with relaxation, stress and meditation, self-love and romantic love.
