This fabulous big ring is a size 9 was created by San Philipe artist Philip Sanchez.
This Sonoran Turquoise stone pops! Amazingly beautiful. It has bright pale blues blending to
dark emerald greens with yellow/beige.
It has a sturdy split shank band with sea shell designs.
The hand display is not to scale, it's way smaller.
This Sonoran Turquoise is new turquoise for me and I'm told it's from a mine in Mexico
located on the New Mexico Arizona border.
