The unique light blue color of the turquoise in this vintage cluster ring is highlighted by the stunning silverwork that surrounds it.  Each of the small turquoise cabs in the ring is a varied hue of blue. The silver frame is a medley of twisted wire, silver dots, and shiny crescent shapes. The placement of the silver encircling the turquoise accentuates its beauty. 

The unknown artist who made this ring was quite skillful, as shown by the careful setting of the turquoise within tiny silver sawtooth bezels. The ring dates to the late twentieth century.


Condition: The ring is in excellent condition. 

Provenance: from the collection of a client from Oklahoma
