This handcrafted statement ring features a absolutely stunning piece of Dry Creek Turquoise with a matrix of caramel, grey and brown! The stone measures approximately 25mm x 13mm. It has been made with a solid sterling 4.5mm silver double ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver scalloped bezel setting and a sterling silver twisted trim. The ring has then been sanded smooth, oxidized, and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, this 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 7 1/2 (Australian size O 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
Please note: I have priced this piece lower than I normally would, due to the presence of some tiny surface scratches on the stone. These are evident if you look closely at the photos, but are hardly noticeable, and don't affect the stone in any way!
💎DRY CREEK 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.
Dry Creek Turquoise comes from a small Turquoise mine outside of Austin, Nevada in Lander County. It is not treated or colour enhanced and is revered for its light whitish - blue Turquoise color. Dry Creek Turquoise has gained much popularity over the years with its creamy white or pale blue colouring, and golden to cocoa brown matrix. High grade Dry Creek Turquoise has beautiful light brown, golden yellow or orange webbed matrix. Dry Creek Turquoise is also referred to as "Sacred Buffalo" Turquoise.
