Turquoise Copper + Fine Silver Ring - Size 9.5

Turquoise Copper + Fine Silver Ring - Size 9.5


This big and bold brecciated turquoise gemstone on copper and fine silver ring is a statement ring to say the least.  AND this turquoise is amazing, with all the different color hues of turquoise in one stone. I am not entirely sure where this turquoise was mined from but I did purchase it from a reputable lapidarist who I have bought many pieces from in the past.

I fabricated the ring band by sandwiching 18ga copper on top of 24ga fine silver, with the fine silver being on the inside of the ring.  All the copper components where heavily textured with recycled copper dust by a technique called fusing, which in the case of copper, takes quite a bit of heat. In addition to the copper, I also performed this process on the fine silver bezel surrounding the stone by fusing recycled fine silver dust to the surface. Finally, this handcrafted turquoise ring was given a patina bath and finished with a light coat of wax to help protect the patina. This fabricated turquoise on copper and fine silver ring, with it's texture and patina, is a beautiful piece of wearable art.

When wearing this amazing piece of art, please avoid moisturizers and or perfume on the area where your ring will be worn, as it may react with the copper and leave dark marks on your hand.  Also, some people have skin reactions to copper and it could leave dark marks on their skin.  Either way, the dark marks can be washed off easily with a little soap and water.

This handmade turquoise on copper and fine silver ring measures as a 10 but fits like a size 9.5, because of the width of the ring band.  The stone setting measures 1 1/8" in width by  1 3/4" in length. The copper and fine silver ring shank measures 1/2" in width.
