Green Jasper Sterling Silver Ring
The Green Jasper Sterling Silver Ring features one of the first 3 cabochons I’ve ever cut. It has a raw faceted look with a geometric yet organic shape. The rock in the raw had a similar shape. I rock hounded this piece from First Creek in Central a Washington on my very first dig this past May. I love the layers of green that came out when cut and polished. The stone is set in a scalloped sterling silver bezel on a 4mm thick double half round band. The stone in setting is 20mm long by 13mm wide and 7mm tall. This one of a kind ring is a size 8.75.
