Sterling Silver and Natural Turquoise Cluster Ring

Warren Ondelacy

About The Sterling Silver and Natural Turquoise Cluster Ring

Natural blue green and green turquoise stones were expertly cut and polished forming the 13 stones bezel set for form a "cluster".  Six (6) pear-shaped stones measure 3/8" X 1/4".  Center round stone is 1/4" in diameter.  Their hand-cut bezels have a finely serrated edge enabling a perfect fit.

Attribution of the work in this fine piece is made without a doubt to Warren Ondelacy.  We have compared the fine design and detailed craftsmanship to signed pieces of similar appearance.  Even the rope twist wire "split" shank with its slim solid cover plate in back is a match.  Such features have become a signature in themselves.
