Are these old stones real or fake?

Would love to get your opinions on whether or not these are turquoise or not. I’m skeptical because I see some faint cracking and looks like a dark blue/black coloring happening in the gaps

. But not sure…Thanks!


Looks good to me :+1:


They look real to me. Not sure if they are natural vs stabilized, but there looks a little bit like there has been some color change in a couple of the stones. Is that the case? If so they could be natural. But let’s see what others more knowledgeable than me think. I love the ring!


Hi. Just found this forum about turquoise. I am learning as I go…This looks like beautiful Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. Is this a ring? No markings at all? The silver ring ? looks old. If you look at the bezels holding the turquoise, they are very thick and not all are sharp and well defined. Handmade. Older pieces were thicker. Just my opinion. Lovely piece.

I would agree with the bezel being handmade, added some examples of what you would pick up at the supply shop. You can get 22 gauge bezel, which this looks like. I think of the stone as more Kingman, looks like some quartz possibly in that center stone?
