Large Tibetan Turquoise Ring

Sorry, this magnificent Turquoise ring is no longer available. We may still have others though.

 An extraordinary Tibetan Turquoise, like looking down into a Tropical sea where a fine network of Turquoise and Olive islands and reefs are scattered through a dark "basaltic" matrix. 

We have individually chosen it to be hand set in a simple, plain Sterling Silver Ring specifically made to house it. We chose this very deep, richly toned, speckled green Turquoise because of it's beautiful colour and unique patterning.

This really nice Turquoise with the full colour I usually associate with Ladakh or Tibet, was a lucky find and has been handset for us in Bali.

Each stone 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. Then again if you love it and it doesn’t fit a skilled Silversmith can easily resize it for you.

If you are attracted to this particular stone then avoid greasy, dirty washing up water, hand creams, hot soapy water, gardening and chemical cleaners as all these can affect the colour of Turquoise, as it is slightly porous and a little soft. Treated badly it will soak up dirt or grease and if washed too much this colour that it has acquired will come out again, SO DON'T !

The ring made for us in Indonesia has a softly rounded, wide (8 mm) band and will comfortably fit a finger size "W" (US 11.25 )

Remember that Turquoise doesn't like chemicals and dirty washing water, or clean soapy water for that matter, as all of these can change the colour, so if you like it now, don't wear it washing.

An occasional careful polish with a dry "Silver Polishing Cloth" will bring up the shine on the silver, when it needs it.
