These raw slabs are fascinating with their natural surface texture and edging. To showcase the raw beauty of these raw slabs of howlight-turquoise I electroformed the stones to the ring shank. Each stone is about 35-40mm freeform organic shape. I ring band is a hammered solid brass band you can let it age or polish it as you prefer. I have fused the edges of the gemstone & the backside of the gem, in 3 layers of gold titanium. I decided not to use gold plating which can wear over time. The titanium is waterproof and never tarnishes.
