Thomas Francisco, a Navajo Native American artist has handmade another beautiful ring out of Number 8 Turquoise. The beautiful turquoise stone with caramel matrix are a perfect combination. Very stunning! The inlay in this ring is a process called cobblestone which refers to the stones being fitted perpendicular or angled to each other like you'd see in a stone courtyard. Often cobblestone pieces vary in size and have beveled rather than rounded edges. Thomas Francisco is a master at this type of inlay as it requires a great deal of skill and patience in order to insure that the pieces fit together perfectly. The shank is buffed to a beautiful luster and the sides are embellished with hand-carved designs that represent the cycles of life and eternal renewal. This masculine ring is a combination of traditional and contemporary design that you are going to appreciate for years to come. This is a perfect ring for everyday wear or for a special occasion.
