Today, one of the most common types of jewelry purchased by ladies is silver jewelry, which includes Ladies sterling silver rings and turquoise rings. The popularity of the Ladies silver ring can be the fact that Sterling Silver jewelry is affordable, and it can be worn for both casual and special occasions. The silver ring may be handcrafted in lost wax in ethnic designs and embellished with gemstones. Sterling Silver rings and Sterling Silver Turquoise rings are 92.5% pure silver.
Although other types of jewelry are worn for aesthetics, the ring such as the turquoise ring symbolizes a multitude of events including marriage and engagement, friendship, or social affiliations. Turquoise has often been added to a ring to strengthen symbolic value of the ring. Among the people of the American Southwest, turquoise is one of the most recognized symbols of the people who have inhabited this region for many centuries. It has been called the âsky-stoneâ? by those people who believe the blue rock they discovered on Earth had fallen from the heavens of the gods above.
The first style of turquoise ring made by Native American tribes was a simple band, and it was initially crafted from bone, shell, and other soft materials. Today, a ladies ring is made using metal, glass, plastic, and wood. Although the materials have changed, the structure has stayed the same. The most common styles of a ring band are plain metal, metal with designing or etching, and metal with inlaid stone with the most popular being the silver ring. When silver is used as a base, turquoise is one of the most popular stones used to create a turquoise ring band inlay. Silver and turquoise complement each other; therefore, the silver turquoise ring band is a wonderful design for everyday wear and any casual occasion that requires subtle elegance.
The turquoise ring with turquoise set in a silver setting draws oneâs attention away from the metal band, to the stone, to make a fashion statement. The set-stone turquoise ring design allows the turquoise to have a more natural look. A sterling silver bezel setting secures and encases the turquoise cabochon or small pieces of turquoise with metal. This style of turquoise ring is usually worn for a formal occasion.
