​Smithsonite and silver ring. size 7.

I found this pretty little stone  in an awesome little rock shop near Salida, Colorado. It is from the Kelly Mine in New Mexico. I love the  Caribbean  Sea color! I set it in a fine silver bezel and surrounded it with silver wire swirls reminiscent of the sea's swell.  The ring shank features a patterned designed and I treated the ring with a darkened patina to show off the ring's detail. This ring is a one-of-a-kind and comes in size 7. 5                       $195
