Quality Silver Mens Rings

Quality silver mens rings are one of our specialties here at Durango Silver Company. We have a large collection of American handmade quality silver mens rings including high quality Turquoise mens rings, quality gemstone mens rings, and plain silver mens rings.  At Durango Silver Co. we make quality silver mens rings in all sizes up to a size 22!

High Quality Silver Mens Rings

Quality Silver Mens RingsThere is a big difference between quality silver mens rings and low end silver mens rings.  A high quality silver mens ring will last much longer than a low quality silver mens ring.  Most of the time you will find  high quality silver mens rings will be made of thicker sterling silver, will have cleaner lines, and a classier look than  low quality silver men’s rings.  High quality silver mens rings are made by many designers world wide.  You can find quality silver mens rings wherever you travel, but you will usually need to find a small local jeweler or family jewelry in the area you are traveling or living in to get a truely high quality silver ring.  Most silver jewelry collectors world wide consider handmade sterling silver jewelry to much more valueable than mass produced silver jewelry.  Most of the time a small jewelry or family jewelry company is not trying to make price point quality silver mens rings, they are rather trying to make  high quality silver mens rings that they themselves would be proud to wear. When it comes to quality silver mens rings, you should always remember the saying “The bitterness of low quality lasts long after the sweetness of a good deal is forgotten”.

Low Quality Silver Mens Rings

Low quality silver mens rings are much easier to find then high quality silver mens rings. Infact, these low quality mens silver rings are almost not worth discussing.  Most of the silver jewelry you will find on the market to day is low quality and is mass produced, often thousands of the same design is molded and made over and over.  These low quality silver mens rings are thinner silver, nickel silver, or pot metal coated with sterling silver.  The reason these low quality silver mens rings are so common is that they are an impulse buy.  These low quality silver mens rings are not worth the low amount of money you will spend on one. You will end up buying a high quality silver mens ring in the long run to replace the low quality silver mens ring you purchased, thus spending more money then if you would have bought one of the high quality silver mens rings in the first place. If you want to see a lot of low quality silver mens rings, just surf the internet and look for the cheapest silver mens rings you can find.

The Turquoise 925 Ring

The American Frontier and especially the American Southwest is an area of great interest to historians as it had a colorful and exciting past in qlobal history. The Native American Indians were responsable for finding American Turquoise about 300 B.C. and a Navajo Indian by the name of Atsidi Sani was responsable for creating the first 925 ring in the Southwest. Atsidi Sani learned the Silversmithing trade from the Spanairds as they came through the Southwest in quest of Gold and Silver.

Turquoise 925 Ring

Durango Silver Company has had a long relationship with the Otteson’s of  Tonopah Nevada. The Ottesons developed the Royston Turquoise Mine and are still the owners of the mine. The Royston Turquoise Mine is the only Turquoise Mine in Nevada producing quanities of quality Turquoise today and a 925 Ring made with Royston Turquoise is a treasure. You can acquire a 925 ring with Royston Turquoise from Durango Silver Company.

If you would like a 925 Ring made with Royston Turquoise, be certain to keep us in mind as we have authentic Royston Turquoise and this can be verified by calling the Ottesons.
