A modern take on southwest jewelry, this handcrafted, one-of-a-kind Pilot Mountains Turquoise and sterling silver ring will be the ring you don't want to take off. The birthstone for December, turquoise aids in protection from negative people and situations as well as facilitating communication.
The Pilot Mountain mine, located in western Nevada, is one of the highest producing mines of American turquoise today. The Pilot Mountain claims produce Turquoise that looks like other famous mines, however, most of the material from the Pilot Mountain mine is very unique and easy to pick out from stone mined elsewhere.
To create my signature, one-of-a-kind texture, I use heat, 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.
