This is one among a group of rings we commissioned Cecil Atencio to make for us. We gave him a group of gorgeous stones of natural, untreated Bisbee turquoise cut by master lapidary Bruce Mead. We wanted a classic ring that would be simple, but durable and set with a very fine stone. So we specified that he make the shank from 14 gauge Sterling so it would be sturdy and very solid and we provided thick-cut stones and asked him to use 3/16" bezel to set them. He wrapped the bezel wtih twist wire and made a split shank which splits into four narrower bands before attaching to the ring back. Simple, elemental, traditional and unisex.
