I love the fabulous Royston turquoise stone on this one! It's a soft blue blending to darker blue with some gold matrix.
The stone sets in a scalloped bezel and is surrounded by twisted silver wire. There's applied
sterling silver pieces with stamp work as well as silver concho like buttons.
It's marked sterling and signed
It has an inside of about 5 1/2" plus a gap 1 3/8"
It's 1 1/2" tall in the front
The stone is 1 1/4" tall by 1" wide.
Weight: 56 grams on my scale
placed a quarter there for scale.
Royston is a district in Nevada consisting of three turquoise mines: Bunker Hill, Oscar Wehrend, and the main producer, Royal Blue. Royston is known for its beautiful colors ranging from deep green to rich, light blues set off by a heavy brown matrix. The Royston district is still producing some turquoise of high quality, but in limited amounts. It is a relatively soft turquoise and should be given proper care to maintain ones" investment.
