Item # 595R-Navajo Kings Manassa Turquoise Wide Band Tufa Cast Ring by A.Bowman Sz 9

134.95

NEW!  Beautiful wide Navajo Kings Manassa turquoise decorative tufa cast ring! The ring consists of an oval cut and polished blue-green turquoise stone with rust brown matrix from the Kings Manassa mine. The artist sets the stone into a smooth silver bezel and mounts it to a wide decorated tufa cast band. Tufa casting is similar to sandcast except the silversmith uses volcanic rock for the mold. The volcanic rock is very soft and porous which gives the textures appearance, but being soft the artist usually only gets 1-3 pours before the mold breaks or otherwise is not usable again. That's why the tufa cast jewelry is so desirable whereas it's mostly one-of-a-kind.

The stone measures 7/16" by 5/16" across with the ring measuring approximately 5/8" wide narrowing to 7/16" wide across the bottom. It weighs 14.9 grams and is a size 9. The ring is stamped Sterling by Navajo silversmith Anthony Bowman. Very nice bold and wide Navajo tufa cast crafted men's ring!  $134.95
