Pashtun, Old Silver and Turq Ring

A very worn old plain silver Pashtun ring with an oval cabachon pale "birds' egg blue/green" Turquoise

This is one of the “special” old rings, that we occasionally are able to source.

It’s quite “special” in that it is pretty worn, with a dull, matte silver surface with mant tiny scratches.

It’s very hard finding and rescuing pieces like this, ones that are so worn, that if not rescued they would soon have been condemned to be melted down to be remade as new pieces.
So worn as to visually be at their best, but still sturdy enough to be wearable.

It’s difficult getting this balance of obvious age and wear, combined with durability, just right.

Fascinating to imagine just where its been in its various migrations, romances and hardships.

To fit a finger of about Size “P” (US 7.75) not being perfectly round it’s a little difficult to be precise.

Each of these old tribal rings is an individual, choose the one you love and if it gets onto your hand, you’ll be right.
As fingers swell and shrink with the heat and weather conditions, these factors will decide which of your fingers is the correct one, at any given time.

Of course you can always use a bit of black cotton to do minor reductions…..

Age: Mid 20th Century.

Size: “P.5” (US 7.75)
