Boulder Turquoise Ring in Sterling Silver
Offered for sale: Unique boulder turquoise ring in Sterling Silver.
One of the things I love about boulder turquoise is that no 2 stones are alike. This one is an elongated oval ( 1 1/4 inch by 3/8 inch by 1/4 of an inch high ) bezel set in Sterling Silver. The boulder turquoise host rock is a variegated oatmeal color with a rare the bright green turquoise appearing in ribbons of color across across the top of the stone. The stone appears not to have been stabilized and the texture of the turquoise can be felt when running a finger over the stone. The boulder turquoise sits quite a ways ( 1/4 inch ) above the surface of the ring.
The boulder turquoise is bezel set in a modified shadowbox setting with notched edging. The 4 wires on the shoulders join together into 2 wires which form the band of the ring. The ring size is 5 3/4. The ring has a nice heavy feel to it weighting 15.6 grams. The ring is marked 'Sterling" along with the maker's mark 'TF' in bold case initials on the inside of the band. The 'TF' might be the hallmarks of Native American artist Thomas Francisco.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Silver/oatmeal/deep emerald green, Size: 5 3/4
