Ribbon Turquoise Ring | Durango Silver Company

Ribbon Turquoise Rings

A Ribbon Turquoise Ring is highly unusual from the general Turquoise Ring you might see in the public. Ribbon Turquoise is cut from what is called saw rock, in the past a southwestern Turquoise cutter would saw the veins of Turquoise out of the rocks and hand cut into Turquoise Cabochons. In these times the public like natural things and they love the vein look which is actually how the Turquoise was formed, the vein was a crack in the host rock at one time millions of years ago, the Turquoise formed in these cracks and so Ribbon Turquoise is a natural formation.

We have created an interesting informational page showing you the different types of Ribbon Turquoise and Ribbon Turquoise Rings. We think you will appreciate it, you can find this page by following this link provided;

A Ribbon Turquoise Ring by Durango Silver Co

The Turquoise Ring pictured above was produced here at Durango Silver Company. John Hartman hand cut the Ribbon Turquoise Cabochons and than proceeded to create the Sterling Silver setting that sets this stone off nicely. We consider this a Men's Turquoise Ring, however, we have had many women love this ring style and have accomadated them by making the same design style in much smaller ring sizes.

Durango Silver Company has been producing high end Turquoise Rings for well over 40 years. Our Turquoise Rings are handmade and they all have hand cut natural Turquoise cabochons unless they are of different material which we inform you of. Our Ribbon Turquoise Rings include cabochons that we have hand cut from rough Turquoise that we have personally mined or purchased directly from the mine owners - we use Natural Ribbon Turquoise and we cut it ourselves so we can gaurantee what we sell is authentic.

An American Ribbon Turquoise Ring

Ribbon Turquoise is found in the United States only as far as we have found. Although Turquoise is mined and made into Jewelry in other countries such as Egypt, Iran, China, Mexico and others, Ribbon Turquoise is not found in these areas. Today, you can be assured you are getting authentic hand made American Turquoise Jewelry with authentic Ribbon Turquoise from Nevada if you purchase it from Durango Silver Company.

We hope you will click the link about to view our new page on this subject. While visiting our presentation you will find page catagory buttons on the left sidebar, follow the links to find yourself a Ribbon Turquoise Ring of your own!

Turquoise Gold Rings by Durango Silver Company

Durango Silver Company has been producing Gold Rings with Turquoise for over 40 years. John and Estell Hartman began their Turquoise quest in the late 1960's and by 1972 they had mined Turquoise at the Stormy Mountain Turquoise Mine with one of the most famous Turquoise Minors in the history of American Turquoise, Cutler Edgar of Battle Mountain, Nevada. By 1972, John and Estell were producing some of the only Turquoise in Gold Rings coming out of the American Southwest, Turquoise set in Gold was very scarce at that time. Cutler taught John and Estell that there is Turquoise and then there is high-grade Turquoise that was, and still is, very rare as less then 5% of the Turquoise that comes out of any Turquoise Mine in the world is ultra-grade. That was embedded in their minds and in the past forty years they believe Cutler knew his stuff! John and Estell have collected high-grade Turquoise since those early years and you will find the Gold Turquoise Jewelry produced by Durango Silver Company to still be some of the most unique jewelry of this kind in America.

Ultra-Grade Turquoise Gold Rings

We are constantly asked if we will sell our rough high grade Turquoise and we answer we only sell it in Jewelry produced by our company. We have found there are very few people that can cut high-grade Turquoise without butchering it. We cut all of the stones used in our Jewelry and we are very careful not to waste any of our precious ultra-grade Turquoise. If you are interested in a Turquoise Gold Ring, we invite you to follow the link from the left side of the website. If you are interested in having a special Gold Ring made with ultra-grade Turquoise - talk to Dillon Hartman at 970 375-2401.

We buy high-grade Turquoise

If you have or believe you have high grade Turquoise and you would like to sell it, please send photos of your Turquoise to John Hartman at Also, write down what you know about your Turquoise such as its history.
