Gold Ring with Lime TurquoiseLime Turquoise Gold Ring– This outstanding Lime Green Damale Turquoise Gemstone was just put up on Durango Silver Co online store – View Now! It is very unusual as the Lime Turquoise is a gorgeous lime colored green with spectacular spider webbed matrix that is like a forest of browns and greens. It there is a lime green Turquoise picture stone -here it is.

When I was cutting this gem, I was totally engulfed in its beauty and immediately fell in love with the stone. It has so much character, I could not wait to make a piece of Jewelry with it. I decided to make a gold and silver ring as the combination is awesome and as bold as the stone without to many frills. It is a simplistic style with 14 KY gold surrounding the stone with a Sterling Silver ring shank overlaid with teardrops of gold on top of the prongs.
