It features a long ring face boasting a gem grade Turquoise stone along with a single red coral. The turquoise portrays a soft green hue with subtle matrixes running throughout while the coral features a deep ox-blood red. Each stone rests securely in a sawtooth bezel over a hearty bed of silver while being surrounded by intricate silver works of silver droplets, leaf appliqués, and a hand stamped border along the edge. The dark oxidization below the stones intensifies their color while also creating depth and dimension to the ring.
The back of the ring has a fused double shank that splits at the sides and continues around the edge, thus creating the saddle design. It's a very sturdy band and in perfect round wearable shape.
