The popularity of silver turquoise rings shows no evidence of slowing.
(PRWEB) August 09, 2013
From Egyptian icons to Native American legends, silver turquoise rings have been worn by some of the most powerful and influential people throughout the history of time.
Now, the new website SilverTurquoiseRings.net is taking a look at both the rich history and current popularity of the popular jewelry.
"We are seeing a brisk interest in matching silver turquoise rings by engaged couples who are looking for something distinctive and unusual to seal their love and commitment," says Megan Reynolds, the spokesperson for the new website dedicated to showing the diversity and beauty of such artistic jewelry.
"Occasionally thought to be more appealing to men because of the bold color and design," Reynolds affirmed that "modern rings crafted of silver and turquoise can be as delicate, with intricate filigree work and finely-shaped stones, or as large and showy as desired by the wearer. Stones the size of quarters are sometimes worked into impressive rings meant to be worn as bold attention-getters," she noted.
As in other areas of life today, she said, there are few rules that can't be broken. Today's artists are forging new paths and, just as those who buy the jewelry often wear it in unexpected ways, the artists themselves sometimes introduce new trends.
"There are still innovations to be introduced," she added with a laugh. "We haven't exhausted the creative talents of the artists. One artist, she noted, is crafting "ring-lets," which she described as a ring attached to a wrist cuff with a small detachable chain.
According to the new site, while many of the silver turquoise rings being designed today are the work of Native American artists, other jewelry designers have also discovered the stunning creative possibilities of working with the traditional blue-green stone, which is adaptable to a variety of jewelry applications.
Some of the most stunning traditional examples of silver turquoise rings are featured on the new site, such as the Zuni "needlepoint" styles with myriad perfect small stones set into silver. Another popular trend today, said Reynolds, is to use turquoise in conjunction with other colored stones, or as accents with opal and precious gems for a refined and elegant expression.
One thing is certain, according to the new jewelry site's spokesperson, "The popularity of silver turquoise rings shows no evidence of slowing. We expect that the variety and the quality of such artistic jewelry will continue to grow in coming years, and we hope to be the source of continuing information on the art form as well as representing the artists and explaining the history of the art."
