We invite you to look over our presentation and we hope you will look at what we have to offer today and into the future as we are continuously adding new Bands and Rings to our collection of Jewelry that we offer online as well as in our historic Trading Post located in Durango, Colorado USA.
Below are several examples of the type of Bands and Rings that we carry. Our inventory is constantly changing as well as growing!
Above are two Native American handmade bands and rings, they are both Navajo made and are classic examples of the type of inlaid Turquoise bands we carry. To the left is a Native American Band that was handmade and inlaid with Opal and green Tibetan Turquoise. The Navajo people as well as many others consider this a Wedding Band while others enjoy wearing a Ring Band like this for their everyday Ring. Durango Silver Company usually has a large selection of these type of Native American handmade Silver Ring Bands to choose from, however, they do sell quickly in different seasons of the year due to weddings as well as other events. To the right is another Native Inlaid Silver Band highlighted with Tibetan Turquoise, Black Onyx and Opal - it was created by Steve Harper, Steve is a fantastic Jewelry designer from New Mexico. This type of Tibetan Turquoise with two tones is very colorful and we try to have as much of it as possible as it is very popular for us. The gemstone inlay in this particular band is very low profile which makes this Silver Band Ring very comfortable.
Above are two plain Silver bands and rings produced by our company. The fluted band to the left is narrow with thick high dome flutes of Silver, it is bold yet it is narrow so it could be worn with along side of another ring on the same finger - we call this a stackable ring band. To the right is a Sterling Silver Ring Band handcrafted by Crystal Hartman of Durango, Colorado USA. This beautifully flowing Silver work is Crystal's specialty, Crystal creates each Silver Ring with great care. This is what we call a Lost Wax Silver Band, they are very unique and a joy to wear. As you can see, all of our Bands and Rings are unusually different from others and we create many new designs on a regular basis.
Above are two more unique Bands and Rings from Durango Silver Company. Both of these Band Rings were created by John Hartman of Durango Silver. The Ring to the left is an overlay, John overlays the designed Silver pieces onto a flat sheet band which is the inside of the ring. The Silver Band Ring on the right was made by braiding two pieces of round Silver wire and then flattening them which creates a unique S curve. Many individuals love this braded Silver band, they tell us it is their favourite everyday ring and they never take it off.
Above are two different Bands and Rings that are very unusual from any others you will find in a Jewelry Store or even on the Internet. The Band to the left is awesome as it is very heavily tooled with fluted Silver rectangles going around the band and to each side of the fluted pieces are rounded domes which make this ring very unusual. To the right is a Saddle Band Ring with a White Buffalo Turquoise gemstone created by John and inlaid by Dillon Hartman. This is one of the most comfortable Silver band rings you will ever wear. The White Turquoise stone is surrounded on both sides by a cable design. The band has stamped sunburst designs that are graduated down both sides as well.
