Ring, Turquoise, Hallmark, 645
A STUNNING STATEMENT RING WITH AN INTERESTING BACKSTORY.
Jock Favour, the silversmith behind this stunning ring, is also an archaeologist so all of his work replicates the style as well as the process of early Navajo work. His creations feature all-natural stones that he mines and sets in the traditional manner. This statement-sized stone has a long rectangular center stone of pretty turquoise with heavy brown matrix and flanked with 4 smaller rectangular stones of gorgeous deep blue-green turquoise, all set in simple bezels of silver ingot accented with repousse and stamp work. Uniquely, the band is also embellished with stamp work, a signature style of Jock’s. One-of-a-kind, definitely a collector.
