This handcrafted ring features a stunning piece of bright-blue Turquoise from the Turquoise Mountain Mine, that measures approximately 17mm x 10mm. It has been made with a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (2.5mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver bezel setting, and molten silver ball accents. 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 created this ring in a size 8 3/4 (Australian size R), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!

💎 TURQUOISE MOUNTAIN 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.
Turquoise Mountain is located in the copper rich Mineral Park Mining District in Mohave County, Arizona in the United States. The turquoise is a beautiful blue green seen many times with a golden or brown web. It is a unique turquoise found close to the Kingman deposits. Even though it is so close to the Kingman Mine, it is considered a "classic" mine in its own right because the turquoise is so different in appearance. This stone exhibits a beautiful range of colour from pale blue to lime green in one piece that makes it a sought-after turquoise.
