This handcrafted Turquoise statement ring features a gorgeous blue piece of Nacozari Turquoise filled with a golden Pyrite matrix. The stone itself measures approximately 18mm x 13mm, and the ring has been made with a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (2.5mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, and a fine silver bezel setting. The ring has then been sanded smooth 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!
The size of this ring is a 8 1/4 (Australian size Q), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
💎 NACOZARI 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 Nacozari Turquoise mine is a mine in Sonora, Mexico, just south of the Bisbee, Arizona mine and in the same mountain range. Nacozari turquoise can be found in bright sky blue and deep navy blue colors and due to the mine no longer being in operation, Nacozari Turquoise is fast becoming highly collectible as it becomes increasingly impossible to get.
