Ribbon and Boulder Turquoise is one of our shops specialties and definitely one of our favorite styles to cut. We have practiced a long time to get it right and develop our own style. These Royston Ribbon Turquoise Earrings are cut from raw rock that we mined and then silversmithed here in our shop. Set in sterling with classic sterling french hook, these are one of a kind no two patterns are the same.
These earrings specifically showcase the rare highgrade blue to aqua tone turquoise making its way through the picturesque limonite host rock like a river on a map. This tonal combination is becoming harder to aquire. In the spirit of the Southwest, these unique "butterfly" stones set in a scallop bezel make a subtle statement as they are a little larger than average with a little more weight.
For each earring the dome-cut stone setting measures 1-1/4 inches long and a little over a 1/2 inch wide.
You should definetely add royston ribbon and boulder to your collection if you haven't already. If you have, than you know there is always room for more =) This is what lapidary art is all about.
