This magnificent blue turquoise cab has a fracture across the center at the point where there is a dark spot.  The stone, however, is securely anchored in the silver bezel. The turquoise sits atop layers of silver.  The lowest layer is the widest and is scored around its edges with lines.  The next upper layer is a smooth silver pedestal.  The upper layer is the turquoise cab in its bezel. Each layer is smaller than the preceding one, making a pyramidal shape.  The silver band is divided into three branches at the base of the Pyramidal Stacked Silver and Turquoise Ring.

 

The ring has a beautiful shape from its dainty band to its strong top.  The turquoise is a beautiful blue with a copper-color matrix

 

Condition: excellent condition with a fracture across the turquoise cab

Provenance: from the collection of a family from Santa Fe
