This striking vintage 9ct gold turquoise ring is the perfect way to add a splash of colour to any outfit!
A large bright blue turquoise cabochon sits proudly in the heart of this superb vintage ring, perfectly framed by a 9ct gold rope border wrapping itself around the gemstone with undeniable elegance. Gold marquise shaped motifs decorate shoulders and a gold rex crown graces the under gallery. Exquisite neoclassical design that is ageless!
The stunning turquoise gemstone has a fabulous unique matrix with beautiful midnight blue veining and specks of sparkling silver, jet black and olive green. Turquoise forms naturally over thousands of years within a host rock and it's fragments of this "mother stone" that give each turquoise gemstone its one of a kind quality. Matrix is the term used to describe the host material that forms uniquely within the turquoise.
Fully hallmarked, this turquoise ring is a wonderful collector's piece and for every year that passes this becomes even more collectible making her the perfect heirloom piece to be passed down in generations to come.
