This is a great sterling silver ring set with a natural Hachita Turquoise cabochon from the High Lonesome Mine at 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 with three oxidized recesses and has has high polish.
I personaly mined the rough material from claims I manage near Old Hachita in the Bootheel of New Mexico. This was originally located as the CORA claim in the 1890's by Joseph G Doty who was the agent for the American Turquoise Company. The company had turquoise mining claims at Turquoise Hill at Cerrillos, New Mexico as well as several claims in the Old Hachita area. The main claim at Cerrillos were commonly refered to as the Tiffany Mine
It is marked with both ".925" and my "pc" hallmark on the inside of the shank.
The ring is a size 8. 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!!!!
