White Buffalo Ring is a size 8
*SOLD*Searchlight Turquoise Ring is a size 8-8.25
These rings feature either a White Buffalo turquoise or a rare Searchlight turquoise, both stones were mined from Nevada. Both are is set in a fine silver bezel and soldered onto a sterling silver cast band which has deeply lined details and 3 "bubbles" on each side. Oxidized heavily to bring out all of the fine details and brought to a high shine. Stamped with my makers mark "koo" and .925 for sterling purity.
The casting process that I do in my studio is called "lost wax casting". If you'd like to read more about lost wax casting please read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost-wax_casting<br />
A little about the Searchlight Mine: Located in Clark County Nevada and known by the names of Crescent Peak, Simmons, Aztec and Searchlight Turquoise, this mine is located about 12 miles west of the town of Searchlight, along west flanks of Crescent Peak. It was extensively worked by the Native Americans of the area long before the arrival of European emigrants. It is estimated that the site was worked for centuries by Native Americans, and was home to an extensive turquoise mining and stone processing community. When the site was first found, the stone chisels, hammers and wedges of the original miners were still left at the mine site, together with the remains of the mining village of the peoples who worked the deposit. It was worked extensively and was very productive of high quality blue turquoise in the decades after Mr. Simmons first "re-discovered" the deposit in 1890, however, it has not been productive for many years.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR JENNAKOO JEWELRY:
CARE OF HANDMADE JEWELRY
The jewelry you are purchasing is made to last, but like all handmade items, it is delicate. Care is necessary and the responsibility of the wearer. Always remove your jewelry before sleeping, swimming, or bathing. Keep jewelry clean and free of perfumes/chemicals (this includes oils, lotions, soaps, etc.). Please remove your jewelry before any types of heavy activity, i.e. gardening, exercising. You may clean your jewelry with clear soap and water, but never use chemicals or other types of cleaners (this will destroy natural stones and remove any patina on the piece). Polishing cloths/pads are great for removing unwanted oxidization (be careful to not rub too hard or you may remove the patina). Please note that water and oils can actually change the coloration and look of natural/untreated stones over time. If this type of change is undesired, be sure to keep your jewelry dry whenever possible (remove when washing your hands, etc.).
NOTE: All damage occurring to a piece under your care is your responsibility.
