This eye-catching Evans Turquoise and Sterling Silver Ring was handcrafted by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. The Turquoise is from the Evans Mine, located on Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, and is a lustrous blue-green with light-brown matrix. The Oval Stone is wrapped in a raised Sterling Silver bezel and set on a 1-inch by 1-1/2-inch plate of Sterling Silver. The plate has been decoratively cut and ornamented with Reticulated Silver, which is Sterling that has been heated at high temperatures to create rippled patterns. The plate is attached to a Sterling Silver Post and Ring Band that is 1/2-inch in width. The Band has been decoratively etched with 5 wavy marks on each side, and is adjustable, allowing for some variation in Ring size. The inside of the Band has been stamped with the artist’s hallmark and “Sterling.” The Ring weighs 20 grams and is adjustable from size 7-1/2 to 8-1/2.
