Here we have a striking ring featuring two different colored polished blue-green turquoise cabochons, placed into bezels with a twist--literally! The bezels are surrounded by twist wire, which extends down as part of the ring shank, a design for which Navajo Victor Hicks is known. Hicks is also known to design around gorgeous and collectible turquoise, case in point these stunning cabs, most likely from the Blue Gem mine. Note that the larger of the two has a crack along a natural matrix line running across it.
The ring is a size 10, which is large for a small-to-medium sized hand, and given the use of twist wire as part of the shank, I do not recommend resizing but rather buying to fit. The ring face is just under 3/4" across at the widest point by about 1-3/4" long--just about long enough to be considered a long ring or knuckle ring for the fact that it covers the knuckle on whichever finger you wear it. Although on my fingers it only partially covers the knuckle of my pointer finger. The turquoise cabochons each measure about 1/2" across and the smaller is also about 1/2" long, the larger about 3/4" long. Besides the one cab being cracked, the ring is otherwise in great vintage condition.
Striking beauty with a twist.
