This handcrafted statement ring features an incredible piece of green Tyrone Turquoise that is the most gorgeous shade of aqua. The itself stone measures approximately 19mm x 10mm, and the ring setting has been made with an solid sterling silver 11 gauge (1.9mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing and a fine silver bezel. The ring has then been sanded smooth and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made from recycled silver, cruelty-free materials and environmentally-friendly methods!
I have made this ring in sizes 11 - 11 1/4 (Australian sizes V 1/2 - W), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be resized!
💎 TYRONE 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 Tyrone mine is located southwest of Silver City in New Mexico. The mine has not been active since the early 1980's, so all of the stones available were mined before that time. It is medium brilliant blue in its high grade form. Today, Tyrone Turquoise is valued for both its beauty and rarity and is a real asset to silver jewellery. It is considered to be one of the greatest New Mexico Turquoise Mines.
