Sterling Silver Horse and Turquoise Ring makes a huge statement, truly one of a kind. Two stunning cabs of Lazy Old Men mine Turquoise and Variscite form one side of this substantial piece with a beautifully cast horse with exquisite detail trotting proudly from its sterling silver frame. Each turquoise/variscite cab contains swirls of mint green, black, grey and lemon yellow. The Lazy Old Men mine is situated in Lander County, Nevada and produces some of the most wildly colored and interesting gemstone I've seen.
The handcrafted shank features a thick band of rounded floral wire encased in solid square wire and measures a substantial 1/4" in width and 1/16" in depth.
Measurements as follows:
Round cab: approx 3/4" x 1/2" at widest Triangle cab: approx 15/16 x 3/4" at widest Sterling horse: 1-3/8" x 5/8" x 5/16" deep
Total: 1-1/2" x 1-3/4"
Size: 6-3/4 with a little 'give' as the bezel set turquoise cabs are only joined to the cast horse by the substantial shank as can be seen in the photographs.
