Nest Ring No. 4 {size 5.75}

0.00

A minty green piece of Hubei turquoise sits inside of a fine silver beaded wire "nest," a top a sterling silver backplate and ring band. The band has been hammered and given a rustic finish. My maker's mark and .925 are stamped on a tag and soldered to the back. US size 5.75. The whole piece has been given a dark patina and then sanded and polished to a matte finish.

Hubei turquoise was mined in the Hubei province of China. Its name "Hubei" means "North of the lake," which refers to the position in which the stone was found. This kind of turquoise was not developed by miners. It was found by farmers in the region. Chinese turquoise accounts for 80% of the turquoise now sold in the U.S. and some of it is so beautiful, it even rivals the famous mines from the American southwest.
