Sterling Silver and Nacozari Turquoise Ring
One of my favorite stones in my turquoise collection, this piece has vibrant blue turquoise, with earthy inclusions and swirls of color, and even a little sparkle of pyrite. I set the stone simply in sterling and fine silver, and accented the setting with a few little balls of silver off to one side. Sitting atop a heavy textured band, with stamped markings that I laid down one hammer swing at a time. I oxidized and then buffed and polished the finish by hand, leaving behind much of the darkness, and highlighting the textural detail. Size 8.25-will fit a size 8-8.5 depending on how loose or tight you like your rings to fit.
