To the right is a inlaid 925 ring that was designed by John Hartman and inlaid by Dillon Hartman. This is typical of Jewelry produced by Durango Silver Company, John will design a 925 ring and then it may be created by a Native American Silversmith and then inlaid by Dillon or one of our other gemstone inlayers.

Durango Silver Company produces a lot of inlaid Silver Jewelry as well as inlaid 925 ring. We have a very high standard of quality gemstones that we use in our Jewelry and gem grade Turquoise is our gemstone of choice. We have been mining and collecting gem Turquoise for over 40 years and have worked with some of the most historic American Turquoise miners of the past.

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. You can also take a mine tour at the Royston Turquoise Mine and then have a 925 Ring made from the Turquoise you personally get on your mine tour as you are allowed to take the Turquoise you find home and you will find Turquoise.
