Artisan Crafted Sterling & Turquoise Ring
Simple but beautiful! This hand crafted ring was acquired at a roadside trading post while I van traveling through New Mexico in 1998. I have enjoyed it for many years and have now decided to let it's beauty be shared with another. It has four bright blue diamond shaped turquoise stones to the center. In excellent condition with NO breaks, chips or cracks to stone or metal work. Artisan initials "BQ" carved inside band (see photos). It is perfect for that everyday piece and would make a lovely "Thinking of You" gift. The face measures 3/8" wide x 3/8" in length, the shape is a square at a diagonal. The band is formed from two separate pieces of silver that meld in the back. A nice pop of color for those jeans and tees or BoHo baby doll dresses.

Turquoise promotes self-realization and assists creative problem solving. It is a symbol of friendship, and stimulates romantic love. Turquoise aids in the absorption of nutrients, enhances the immune system, stimulates the regeneration of tissue, and heals the whole body. Turquoise crystal properties are connected to the healing energy of water, the life-giving element that sustains the planet and the origins of life itself. This energy of renewal and rejuvenation is what gives the Turquoise crystal its unique ability to support healing intentions and overall well-being.
