This gorgeous ring was made by Navajo Artist Murphy Platero and it's a size 9. The Boulder Turquoise
stone is a brown/red that looks almost wood-like with a ribbon of tealish blue
The stone sets simply in sterling silver. Note the fabulous curvy sterling silver wire shank.
It's sterling silver and may be marked under the shank.
It measures 7/8" tall by 1/2" at it's widest point.
The curvy wire shank tapers down to just over 1/4" in the back.
weight: 10.9 grams on my scale.
I placed a quarter there for scale.
Boulder Turquoise is sometimes called Ribbon Turquoise and it's cut in such a way that the
turquoise is the accent in the mother rock. It often looks like a river flowing through a desert or landscape.
Boulder Turquoise has a warm earthy look to it and each stone is unique
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
