For the discerning collector of American turquoise jewelry, this gorgeous vintage Royston turquoise is set on a hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind sterling silver square band. Sourced from the Royston mine in Nevada from about 50 years ago, the matrix in this stone is like no other. In fact, I created the texture on the band to reflect the characteristics in the stone. The result is an original turquoise stone ring that will be treasured for years to come.
I have always had a passion for collecting rare gemstones and have created a natural stone and silver jewelry collection. To create the one-of-kind sterling silver texture featured on this ring, I use heat, no solder, to fuse the hand-cut silver pieces to its sterling silver base. I then shape the ring and solder silver sheet onto each side. I then must saw it to be the perfect size and the silver edges undergo extensive filing and polishing to get a perfect comfort fit. Once the band is completed, I create the custom bezel for the stone so that the stone setting is a perfect fit. The result is a true one-of-a-kind, finely crafted, statement ring.
