Here is an Elegant Long Turquoise and Sterling Silver Ring, Hand Wrought by Frank Patania Sr. This is a Clean and Classic Design, typical of the World Famous Patania style. The Turquoise is framed in a handsome shadow box setting, and secured with a serrated bezel, that is not only attractive, but more effective in holding the stone than a regular smooth bezel. Hallmarked with the Thunderbird Shop mark only which was typical of his early days, and stamped Sterling.
This Striking Ring is 1 5/8" long x almost 3/4" wide. The Turquoise is 8mm x 30mm. It is Size 8 1/2, and weighs 10 grams.
Condition is Vintage Excellent, except it has been resized, and the shank is quite thin at the back.
