Mens Turquoise Rings

Lander Blue Ring - Mens Turquoise RingJohn and Dillon have just updated ourMens Turquoise Rings presentation on DurangoSilver.com and would like to invite you to visit our new page for some great photos and information.

Durango Silver Co has been making high quality Mens Turquoise Ringsfor almost forty years now! We have become well known for our unique Mens Turquoise Rings with spectacular Turquoise Stones. I remember when Lander Blue first came out on the market which was about 1975. Estell and I purchased about 500 carats in Battle Mountain, Nv., they gave it to us in a small brown paper bag and we put it in our truck. Somehow, when we got back home in Albuquerque the bag was nowhere to be found. We figured out we must have thought it was a bag of trash and threw it out when we cleaned our truck somewhere along the way home.

Soon after, we started buying Lander Blue Spiderweb Turquoise nearly every week for our Mens Turquoise Rings. At that time, Lander Blue was $4.00 per carat and the same stones will now bring nearly $250.00 per carat. Anyway, we must have made over 250 wonderful Lander Blue Mens Turquoise Rings in Silver as well as gold. We shipped Lander Blue Rings of all types, but mostly mens Ring to many areas of the world.

Those were great times and we have made thousands of great Mens Turquoise Rings since.

Kingman Turquoise Story by Durango Silver CoThe Kingman TurquoiseMine was discovered well over a thousand years ago by the Hohokam Indians which were located in what we now call Arizona. It is actually one of the first Turquoise deposits discovered in America and is still going strong today.

The Kingman Turquoise  Mine produces more Turquoise than any other Turquoise Mine in the United States today and a major share of the Turquoise Jewelrythat you see on the market has Kingman Turquoise used as the stone. The Kingman Turquoise Mine produced all qualities of Turquoise and the majority is blue.

Durango Silver Co has created a presentation page on Kingman Turquoise and Kingman Turquoise Jewelry that you may like to take a look at. There are many photo with descriptions and a lot of great information of Kingman Turquoise.
