Gene & Martha Jackson created this classic sterling silver ring, set with beautifully polished natural Turquoise and Lapis Lazuli. Although I am not sure which way to wear this ring on your finger, it looks good in either direction.
There are several hairline cracks in the turquoise stone, but they seem to be below the surface. Therefore, I am discounting the ring. Please note that Martha just recently passed away in January 2019.
The face of the ring measures almost 1-1/2 long. Weighs 10 grams. Brand new. Gift Box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Hallmarked by the artists. Size 7-1/2.
Gene & Martha Jackson are members of I.A.C.A. and I had the pleasure of meeting them and purchasing this and other jewelry directly from them at the recent IACA wholesale market. The workmanship is impeccable - you can always depend upon quality when you purchase a piece of Gene & Martha Jackson jewelry.
