A wonderfully big, American made Turquoise ring. This sterling silver ring has a large Blue Gem Turquoise center piece set in a hand textured bezel of pure silver. Blue Gem turquoise is from Nevada, I bought this stone directly from the current owner of one of the still operating Blue Gem Turquoise mines. The stone is the color of the sky; that big, amazing southwest sky. It's a magical color, true to what I *think* most people think of as turquoise. The turquoise for this ring is 100% natural, other than cutting and polishing, nothing has been done to this stone, it is truly of the earth, reflecting the sky. A pool of water on your finger, it's a special ring.

For this ring, I made the ring band square; while attractive and comfortable, the shape really helps to keep the stone on top of your finger, rather than flop over as many large rings are apt to do. Inside the shank is the metal quality stamp (925), my hallmark, and few words, just for the owner (if you're serious, convo me and I'll tell what is stamped inside the ring).

The ring band is 8.75mm or .34 inches. The bezel set turquoise is 26.8mm or just over an inch at 1.05 inches at the longest point. And, 22mm or nearly an inch at .86 inches at the widest point of the turquoise.

Fits US size 7 - 7.5 somewhere in between **please note** a wide ring band does tend to fit a tad more snug than a narrow band.

Many hours of work goes into each piece I sell; edges are filed and polished, bezels are clean, solder joins examined with a loupe, etc. Quality materials are used, nothing I sell is lightweight, it's solid substantial. These pieces will last many, many years even with everyday wear.

Thoughtfully made in California.

I made this ring in my {garage} studio in Carlsbad, California. I use traditional goldsmith hand tools and techniques to make all my work. Every piece I make starts out exactly the same – me sitting at my bench, magnifying visor atop my head, silver or gold sheet stock that I've made, and the stones that will be used for the piece. While I do make similar pieces, every piece is unique and completely made by hand. You can see a slide show of me making a ring here: http://www.khmetalwork.com/mkRing/

khmetalwork is just one person, no helpers or assistants – from selecting stones to delivering packages to the post office, it's all me. I take time and care to make every item, what sets my work apart is my attention to detail, I want the ring to look as good sitting on a table as it does on a finger. When you look at my work, it is finished from every angle, not just the top – the undersides of the bezel are patterned, the inside of the ring bands have designs or words in addition to my hallmark and quality stamp. Additionally, all the edges are clean and filed smooth, attention to detail.
