I love this new batch of Boulder Ribbon Royston turquoise. The colors
are warm with golden browns to yellow and of course I love the green! You don't
see much of that.
This ring is a size 8 and was created by San Felipe artist and silversmith Philip Sanchez.
The stone sets in a smooth bezel with carved silver border.
It has a wide sturdy split shank band with a bit of stamp work.
The hand display is not to scale, it's way smaller.
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.
It's marked sterling and signed
It measures just over 1 1/4 tall by 9/16" wide.
The stone is 1 1/8" tall by3/8" wide.
weight: 10.4 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
