A new made-to-order limited edition piece in our new line, FINE COLLECTION (handmade fine jewelry, always made with Knot & Splice's signature high-quality, American-mined stones):

  • made-to-order especially for you in half/whole sizes 3–12
  • each ring is one-of-a-kind (you will not receive the pictured ring which has sold, however, a similar high-grade/gemmy, natural stone of coloration and beauty from the precious and rare Damele mine will be chosen for you); the stones we have selected for this design are similar in size (this will vary a bit), and each stone's coloration may vary a bit and may be with or without matrix (we cannot accommodate specific stone requests, thank you for understanding). See photos for the range of collectible stones that we have set aside for this design!
  • highly-polished solid 14K yellow gold fine jewelry ring
  • natural and super rare, high-grade Damele turquoise/variscite stone mined from the rare and highly coveted Damele mine in Nevada, USA. The collection of stones reserved for this design are from Tony Cotner's collection (late owner of the Damele mine). Mining is very limited at this location (recently, a good friend of the late owner reported that the mine mine doesn't appear to be yielding new turquoise), and as such, the supply of stones is extremely rare. Damele turquoise is one of the top U.S. turquoise mines collected with distinct characteristics and provenance. The value of this stone will only increase with time as the material from this mine is scarce.
  • solid 14K yellow gold bezel painstakingly handmade to fit the stone
  • The back will be stamped with the maker's initials "NM" and "14K" (please note that due to the small size, the ring band can slightly obscure the maker's mark on the back of the bezel and/or bezel may not have initials, just 14K)
  • approx. 1mm wide smooth handmade 14K yellow gold band; work hardened strong for a lifetime of adornment (please wear with love and follow our care instructions on the FAQ/Policies page).
  • As noted on our FAQ page: natural turquoise should not repeatedly be exposed to water, oils, perfumes, or chemicals. Natural turquoise is a soft, porous stone. Oils, perfumes, water, and soap, etc. can affect the appearance of the stone over time, so please avoid exposure to water, oils, perfumes, etc. whenever possible.
  • handmade in the US by artist Nicole J Melton
  • Your ring will be made-to-order and one-of-a-kind (made especially for you). You will not receive the pictured item, but a beautiful ring with a stone of similar quality and beauty. Please see current processing times for all items on our FAQ/Policies page. We do not offer resizing, so please be sure to order your correct size before checkout.
