This is sterling silver ring set with a natural Hachita Turquoise cabochon from the Bootheel area of Southwest New Mexico, near the ghost town of Old Hachita, New Mexico. The cabochon was cut by me, Philip Chambless, in my Zuni Mountain Studio close to El Morro/Inscription Rock, New Mexico. This cabochon sits on a sterling silver ring shank that is covered with stars or equilateral crosses and has a high polish. This has always been one of my most successful ring shank designs.
I did not personaly mine the rough material for this cabochon but assume it is from the Turquoise Mountain area.
It is marked with both ".925" and my "pc" hallmark on the inside of the shank.
The ring is a size 6 1/2. I do not resize rings myself, that is best left to jewelry repair professionals, but this ring could be slightly enlarged... If all else fails, I might be able to make a similar version. Of course, the stones are one of a kind so there would be differences. BUT, you might like the newer version better!!!! Philip Chambless
