This knock-out ring has four, thick-gauge Sterling bands (that right, four!) which will result in the band not actually resting down in that little wrinkle where the finger and the hand meet. Thus, you may require a bit smaller size than 8.25. Maybe eight-even, or a size between eight and eight and one-quarter. This ring is a looker. That big, alluring No. 8 Mine turquoise is mesmerizing. Overall, this ring is super well-made. The turquoise is held-in by an intricate, fluted bezel; then a Sterling rope surround, and finally a thick-gauge Sterling base—all siting atop the aforementioned quadruple Sterling band. Mr. Etsitty created a ring worthy of his considerable reputation in the Native American jewelry world. It is quite substantial at 24.8-grams, or .87-ounces. Hallmarked "Myron Etsitty" in Gothic font.
