Chunky Vintage Southwest Artisan Sterling Silver & Blue Turquoise Ring w/ Matrix Size 6

Regular price $27.50

Tax included.

    Large, Lovely, Vintage Handcrafted Southwest Sterling Silver and Blue Turquoise Ring. The stone has fantastic contrasting matrix.

   The ring is approximately a size 6. The face of the ring measures just over approximately 11/16 of an inch, or about 18 millimeters, high, with the setting measuring just over approximately 1/2 of an inch, or about 13 millimeters, wide and projecting about 1/4 of an inch from the finger. The band is just under approximately 1/8 of an inch, or about 3 millimeters wide, by just under about 1/16 of an inch, or roughly 1.25 millimeters, thick. (Included is a US Quarter in the photographs, for the measurement-challenged and ruler-averse.) It is marked inside, "925", unsigned. Weight is approximately 4.26 grams, which includes the stone weight, of course.

  This is a vintage piece, which has been worn and enjoyed. There will be all of the expected surface scratches and dings in the silver from normal wear. The thick band is still round, but the turquoise setting sits somewhat crookedly on it, apparently mounted that way. It seems less noticeable on a human finger than on the stiff ring display in the photos, but it is definitely worth noting. There is a tiny chip on one side, in addition to the natural surface irregularities, but it appears stable. Extensively hand polished, but there will still be plenty of areas of missed tarnish, as it was completely black to start. This is a handmade item, and will not be machine-perfect in any way. Sold "AS IS", due to the canted setting.

   A very interesting piece of turquoise in a heavily handcrafted vintage Sterling silver ring, with a simple form designed to show off the stone.

This item sold "AS IS", due a tilted setting visible in the photos and described above, no returns.
