About The Three Stone 1880-1890 Ring

Three hand-cut oval turquoise stones with virtually no visible matrix.

Center stone is deep blue green oval 3/8" long X 3/16" wide (visible portion). Two remaining stones are light blue green to medium blue green turquoise 5/16" long X 3/16" wide.

Shank is divided into three branches that spread to meet the side width of the top decorative panel. The cross bar that is soldered over these branches has an unusual design.

There are three small "rings' that were produced not by the application of a ring of wire, but by the exit wound of a nial or punch. The metal raised was the smoothed and polished making a tiny "doughtnut" or "grommet".

Very, very unique, the overall design reflects a strong influence from Spanish jewelry of the 1860's - 1870's.
