This handcrafted statement ring features a gorgeous piece of aqua, teal and green Royston Turquoise. The stone itself measures approximately 11mm x 9mm, and the setting has been made with a solid sterling silver 16 gauge (1.4mm) ring band, a thick a sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver bezel around the stone, and a sterling silver arch around it. The ring has then been sanded 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 (Australian size P 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!

💎 ROYSTON 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.
The Royston Mining District is located in Nevada, outside of Tonapah. The Royston District covers several miles of mountain range, and is considered to produce some of the highest quality turquoise in the world. Royston is known for its beautiful colours ranging from deep green to rich, light blues set off by a heavy brown matrix or a golden brown matrix. It is also known for the rare blue to green fade that can be found in one rock or cabochon.
