A beautiful blue-green all-natural turquoise cab is securely held in place by a silver bezel that is sculpted around its edge.  Around the bezel is a twisted silver wire rope.  The ring is supported by a split shank silver band.  It is these simpler silver rings that are the early ones.  Later, it became popular to add silver adornments such as leaves around the stone.  The simplicity of the early ones is responsible for their popularity.
