The Premium Sleeping Beauty Ring that you can't see in any store! This is an exclusive handmade jewelry by our artist, Noah from Texas USA.
"My jewelry has a Native American look to it, as my father spent a lot of time with Navajo Indians throughout his adolescence. Since I coveted what he has made throughout his time as a silversmith, I developed a southwestern style with its own uniqueness."- Noah

Red coral has long been a revered material among Native American jewelry makers in the Southwest. Coral is made from the skeletal remains of minute sea creatures called Coral Polyps. The colonies form reefs and atolls as they grow deep under the sea. Coral jewelry is sought after by collectors due to its beautiful coloring and organic origin. Because if its rock-like hardness and vibrant color, many people consider coral to be a gemstone. Coral was first introduced to Southwestern tribes such as the Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi by Spanish and European traders, who had a steady supply of coral mined from Mediterranean coastlines. The coral came in many shades, from deep red to orange and even white. Red was the most common color used in coral jewelry and was referred to as "red gold." It is actually one of the only materials used in jewelry that was once part of a living organism. The most popular varieties of coral jewelry feature red coral, which is more desirable and only found in certain parts of the world. The water temperatures and climate all play a role in how the color and durability of coral is developed.
Southwest tribes ascribed spiritual and mythical significance to coral jewelry and believed that it held healing powers. Wearing red coral jewelry would create luck, increase fertility, cure illness, and increase the wearer's lifespan. Wearing red coral jewelry also signified social prominence in some tribes and those who wore multi-strand red coral necklaces were held in high regard among their peers. Coral is used in many forms in jewelry, both as beads and gemstones placed in rings, bracelets, and necklaces. As the craft of coral jewelry making evolved, artists made a coral jewelry set in sterling silver. Of course, turquoise is the perfect complement, and the two stones are often used together to create detailed and colorful designs as with this ring. Both stones also hold cultural and spiritual significance and some people believe wearing the stones together compounds their positive energy.
The Sleeping Beauty Mine is located in Globe, Arizona and is considered to be one of the most important turquoise producing mines in the world. The gemstone got its name from the mountain where it is mined, which resembles a sleeping woman lying on her back. Its turquoise is noted for its unique color and quality ranging anywhere from "robin's egg" blue to sky-blue to deep-blue, and sometimes showing a pyrite matrix. Sleeping Beauty turquoise is the favorite of the Zuni Pueblo silversmiths for use in petit point, needlepoint, and inlay jewelry. It’s pure color and natural strength make Sleeping Beauty Turquoise characteristics a favorite for jewelry makers and artists around the world. It is one of the most prized forms of turquoise for jewelry and adornment and is often stable enough to be polished and used for turquoise jewelry without any treatment or stabilization. The mine has been closed to turquoise mining since August 2012. The owners of the mine decided to concentrate on copper mining only as the price of copper has risen significantly. There are no plans to open the mine up to turquoise mining in the future.
I am very happy with my ring ! I would say the size runs small . But I believe it is beautiful and well done .
I love mine!
Strong band, this ring should last me a lifetime.
I wear it everyday, I am a hazmat truck driver, and combo pipe welder .
I ordered a 6.5 for my pinkie, but got a ring finger size 8 instead. I took off my regular ring and put my new ring on and haven’t taken it off since! It looks great and feels like it belonged on my finger all along!
This ring is even more beautiful than the picture on your website. It is the most comfortable ring I have ever worn! I LOVE IT!!!
