Did you know that turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history…it is the talisman of kings, shamans and warriors. It is a stone of protection. It a strengthening stone, good for depression or panic attacks. Turquoise is a healer, providing solace for the spirit and well-being for the body! This wonderful 10 karat yellow gold (does have a slight pink cast to it) turquoise ring is set in the center with one oval cabochon cut turquoise measuring 9mm x 11mm and is considered to be called bluebird in color. The turquoise does have some internal crazing, however it is not visible to the naked eye and no crazing breaks the surface. Ring Size: 7-1/2 can be sized. This ring was created using an old ring mold…it is considered to be a re-issue of the original antique ring. Since the majority of turquoise is dyed the turquoise in this ring will be rated as dyed as well.
All rings come with one free sizing…To size the ring down it is completely free…to size the ring up we will pay for the first size, and you will pay the balance. The good news though, is that we will only charge you what our jeweler charges us…another words it will be much less expensive.
