About The Single Nugget Cut Turquoise Zuni Ring

Sterling silver and a single, large piece of natural deep blue turquoise are the two materials used to create this ring.  The setting and serrated side "fans" are carefully made of mill-rolled sheet.  The ornaments tapering into the shank on either flank of the bezel, have been additionally detailed with a single "beaded" straight line stamp.  

Foundation for everything is a tufa cast base and shank in one piece.
