“Petals of Sky” Ring. $625.

The land flowers in the embrace of petals of sky. Wings sets a very old and delicate  Skystone in a perfect clear blue with into a the petals of a scalloped bezel, atop the flowering vine of a sterling silver band. This stone, old, natural, and from his private collection, was labeled Dry Creek turquoise, and while it’s vanishingly rare to find material from that mine that is not matrix-webbed ice blue, there is some of the old stone that had more color. This long oval cabochon, flat and glossy, is a near-flawless sky blue slightly darker than the shade of a robin’s egg, traced with impossibly fine matrix lines in a pale golden-brown shade. It’s set into a scalloped bezel and trimmed with twisted silver, then placed atop and band of heavy-gauge sterling silver pattern wire, half-round in shape with a flowing vine pattern standing out in sharp relief, either end cut and split and stretched outward, freehand, to form an open embrace of a setting shaped like an Eye of Spirit. [The band’s detail work makes it unsizeable; a new band can be created in a different size for a $100 fee.] Ring is size 6; band is 1/4″ across; setting is 7/8″ long by 9/16″ across; cabochon is 5/8″ long by 3/8″ across (all dimensions approximate). Other views, including the underside of the setting and the open embrace of the band, shown below.
