Here we have a gorgeous "long ring" or "knuckle cover ring" of three types of natural turquoise, and not just any turquoise--the center cabochon is a rare piece of Carico Lake Lime, from the famous Nevada mine, and the other two are also mined in Nevada, and could be from the larger Carico Lake mine or a Royston area. The ring is designed to reach and depending on the length of your fingers possibly cover the knuckle of the finger on which it is worn. Natural turquoise is increasingly hard to find, and this turquoise is especially wonderful, with beautiful caramel colored matrix in the two bluer-green cabs, and the most lovely creamy lime color in the featured piece. The silver work around the ring is beautiful, a mix of traditional Native American elements, including twist wire, raindrops, ornate stems, and small loops. And that is what makes this ring so special--it is absolutely traditional and heavy, the shank is actually a thick band, and uncommon in that it is Hopi in design.
The size 7 ring face measures about 1-5/8" long by 5/8" wide. The three cabochons vary in size but are about 1/4" wide and about 5/8" long, more or less. The last letter of the artist's name is barely visible from wear. One side of the ring shank is not soldered, so somewhat adjustable for a larger finger, although the silver is strong and will not open too terribly much wider. In good vintage condition.
A statement ring of subtance. Natural Carico Lake turquoise! Silver artistry! And the weight and size to hold it all!
