Turquoise Shadow Box Ring Size 8


Turquoise Shadow Box Ring made using traditional metalsmith techniques. Set in a fine silver serrated bezel with a sterling silver 3mm wide twisted wire pattern ring band. I soldered a thick sterling silver wire ring around the backplate to create the shadow box effect. The diameter of the ring setting is a little over 1” (28mm).  The stone is natural Bisbee turquoise and is 5.30 carots and measures approximately 6mm x 10mm. I soldered a cactus to the backplate to complete the desert scene. I used some tools to create a design into the backplate to give it a rough texture. A dark patina on the background highlights the cactus and turquoise. Fits US Ring size 8.  A unique organic and rustic Southwest style that works for men or women.
