The Turquoise in the ing is absolutely stunning. It has shades of deep green with deep black inclusions that are random but one can see whatever image comes to mind like an inkblot test. Sterling silver Bezel set with a see-through back ensuring the stone is actually that deep. The sterling setting has detail on all sides. The long sides have 3 slightly larger balls/ beads with 4 smaller ones directly under. The ends have the same pattern but a bit smaller scale. The shank has 2 prongs that attach to the bottom of the setting that tapers to one, just before the taper the two shanks form a V that is open. This vintage ring has a nice heft at 7.64 grams.

A quick guide to the shine/ polish of this piece 1 = no shine through 5 = 100% polished.
This piece = 2.5
A perfect score for my taste. The silver is polished but not overly shiny, there is dark tarnish that takes years to build mostly seen on the 4 sides leaving the new owner to polish to taste.
