Years ago, my dad and I would trek through the long, hot Mojave Desert to visit crumbling ghost towns, curio stands and trading posts. The dealers knew my dad loved old hand-worked trading jewelry and they saved aside unusual pieces for him to see first. Once he acquired a ring that seemed to confer the essence of the desert. In mixed metals, it held a turquoise oval surrounded with simple wildflowers set with coral. He put it on my index finger and told me not to lose it. But I did.
I designed this ring exactly as I remember the original. A turquoise oval in a vintage pronged setting is mounted in a border of flowers in burnished silver and bronze. This is the ring to call your summer souvenir.
Size: Adjustable band for sizes 6, 7, 8, and 9
