This turquoise and matte black iron and sterling silver ring is a wonderful marriage, a term we use in the industry to refer to the union of two (or more) pieces from different time periods or pieces of jewelry. The black iron mounting, from Marsh and Company*, is fitted with a contemporary sterling bezel and natural turquoise stone to reveal a wonderfully dramatic ring. This mounting, never completed by Marsh and Co., is now set with a beautiful, natural oval cabochon turquoise stone, a combination that appears to be a natural fit in color, texture, and material.
From the top of the silver bezel, the turquoise measures **approximately 16 x 13mm. Overall, the top of the ring measures **approximately 21.5mm x 27.5mm with a ring size of 9 3/4.
Simple! Striking! Dramatic! Wearable! This ring contrasts strongly from any other piece of jewelry; one would never see anything remotely similar. It is a perfect combination of an interesting and unusual mounting from a famous and coveted American maker, Marsh and Co., set with a natural, American stone: turquoise.
* Mounting acquired directly from Marsh. ** approximation is due to the fact that the stones are mounted and exact measurements can not be taken.
