This handcrafted statement ring features a absolutely stunning piece of genuine Number Eight Turquoise, with an incredible brown matrix over the bright aqua stone. The stone itself measures approximately 19mm x 14mm, and the ring setting has been made with a solid sterling 11 gauge (2.5mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver bezel around the stone, and six molten sterling silver balls surrounding it. The ring has then been sanded smooth, 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 8 1/4 (Australian size Q), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
💎 NUMBER EIGHT 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 Number 8 Turquoise mine is in the Lynn mining district in Eureka County, Nevada. It's famous for its black, golden red and brown spider web matrix set off with the unique bright powder blue turquoise background. The mine has now been depleted, and for this reason Number 8 Turquoise is considered to be extremely valuable.
