About The Green Natural Turquoise & Silver Ring

Sterling silver mill-rolled sheet and drawn wire, both square and fine round, were used to fabricate the body of this handsome ring. 

A natural Nevada turquoise was carefully cut from high grade, intense green with golden matrix gem material.  This long oval stone was set in a saw-notched deep bezel encircled by a trenched tight coil of fine drawn round wire. 

Framing the coil and entire ring face is a wall of square wire.  Its clean edge is ornamented on one side with a saw-notched section terminated at each end by a file-cut triangle.  This same treatment is utilized to accent three (3) smelted perfect raindrops on the opposing side.  An ample shank 3/16" wide at the back, fans to 1/2" with five (5) individual strands where it joins the back plate of Vandever's setting.
