They say once you've seen gay Paris, it's hard to go back to the farm. Maybe. But once you wear real turquoise, it's damn-sure hard to tolerate the fake stuff—or the 'compressed' block version. This ring has beautiful, real turquoise (and vice versa!), and is in shiny Sterling. It is a round cluster, measuring and inch-and-a-quarter in diameter and weighing 10.2-grams, or .335-ounces. The mine was not identified when we acquired it but one might assume it is Kingman, Arizona—though it could be from one of the Nevada mines which also have a luxurious blue hue. Hallmarked "JSW."
