You may or may not know that this color of natural Turquoise is very hard to come by.  This type of Emerald Green or Forest Green Turquoise has always been hard to find, but is becoming even harder to find these days as almost all the Turquoise mines world wide have been shut down for one reason or another.  Having said that, the Military Green Turquoise is one of the most famous looks from the Royston Turquoise mine in Nevada, USA.

Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry

Just like the Turquoise its self, Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry is very hard to come by due to the lack of Turquoise cabochons available to jewelers as well as the fact that most jewelers prefer to use blue Turquoise over any other color of Turquoise. Here at Durango Silver Company that is not the case.  We love to make jewelry with natural green Turquoise from Lime Green Turquoise Jewelry to Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry.  So when you are in need of some rare Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry or any other color of Turquoise Jewelry keep us in mind.

925 Ring

925 Ring actually means Sterling Silver Ring, however, for the sake of this document I am going to refer to it as 925 Ring. Durango Silver Company has been in the business of producing 925 Rings for nearly 40 years now and 925 Rings are our specialty.

925 RingTo the left is a 925 Ring made by John Hartman of Durango Silver Company. This 925 Ring features a Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Stone, a Oville Jack Turquoise stone and a Sugilite gemstone. It was created in Sterling Silver in what John considers his Southwestern Victorian Silver design work. John is well known throughout the world for producing a very unique style of 925 Jewelry that is unique only to himself.

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.
