Bisbee Turquoise is considered the best Turquoise that ever came out of the ground in North America, mining of Bisbee Turquoise was closed around 1978 and has not continued since. It stopped due to it being a liability to the largest copper mine in North America - The Bisbee Mine.
The Gold Men's Ring to the upper left features a high-grade Blue Wind Spiderweb Turquoise Gemstone from Lander County, Nevada USA. This Turquoise is extremely rare and unbelievably beautiful, Dick Edgar found a small pocket of this Turquoise, (less then 100 lbs.), in 1973. The setting for this fine Turquoise stone was created by John Hartman by carving a master in jewelers wax and then using the lost wax process to cast it into gold. This is a fantastic Mens Gold Turquoise Ring.
About 20 years prior to Dick discovering the Blue Wind Turquoise is elder, Cutler Edgar discovered the Number 8 Turquoise Mine which is what you see in the photo to the upper right. This mine produced a tremendous amount of spiderweb Turquoise, however, most of it was to soft to use in Jewelry. The bulk of Number 8 Turquoise was treated with resins to harden the Turquoise making it applicable to use to make Native American Turquoise Jewelry. Authentic natural Number 8 Turquoise as in this ring is rarely scene - it is beautiful, don't you agree? This is a wonder Gold Mens Ring that is a Museum quality example of Number 8 Turquoise.
It has not been common practice for Native American Jewelers to make Gold Turquoise Jewelry or Gold Turquoise Mens Rings. Silver has been the precious metal of choice for Turquoise Jewelry made in the American Southwest since 1865. We began producing Gold Turquoise Jewelry in 1975 and found it to make our Jewelry unique from all other Jewelry being made in the Southwest, there has been very few others producing Gold Turquoise Jewelry with high-grade Turquoise other then our company, for this duration. Durango Silver Company focuses on creating exceptional quality Gold and Turquoise Jewelry with authentic natural high-grade Turquoise from the American Southwest.

Colorado Gold Nuggets were inlaid into the channels with Gold solder and the Ring was completed to perfection.
