American Turquoise Ring - Manassa Turquoise

$300.00 $240.00

A modern take on southwest jewelry, this handcrafted, one-of-a-kind American turquoise ring features a rare Colorado Manassa turquoise stone and a handcrafted modern sterling silver ring band.

The Manassa Turquoise Mine, originally called the Lickskillet Mine, was one of the first Turquoise deposits found in Colorado and the Southwest. The Manassa mine is believed to first have been mine by the Anasazi Indians.  Manassa turquoise was mined up until the late 1990's.  (Source: Durango Silver Company).

To create my signature, one-of-a-kind texture, I use a 20-step process involving heat from my torch, no solder, to fuse the hand-cut silver pieces to the sterling silver base. This creates a unique look but also provides superior durability and texture to the piece. Once the band is complete, I craft a custom bezel so the stone is perfectly set in place and protected for years to come.
