The Kingman Turquoise Mine, located in Kingman, Arizona, is one of only three prehistoric mining sites in Arizona. It's discovered and mined by prehistoric Navajo Indians well over 1000 years ago. The Colbaugh family has owned and operated Kingman since the 1880s and is credited for discovering this ancient mine as well as the Hohokam hammers left behind by the Navajo Indians.
The "high blue" color of Kingman turquoise has become a standard in the industry and has made them some of the most valuable turquoise in the world.

I choose every piece of jewelry based on the value of the stone. Unlike most of the Turquoise on the market, the stone has to be high quality (not stabilized, not color treated and not reconstituted).
I also love jewelry with unique character and great craftsmanship. What this means is that you are getting jewelry that is a showstopper and not to mention a great investment.
7" inside circumference including a 1-1/4" opening

Bracelet Fitting Guide:åÊ
Use a tape measure. Wrap the tape measure around your wrist on which you plan to wear your Toqos bracelet. Make a note of the number at the point where the tape meets the 0. To ensure the bracelet fits comfortably, add 1.5 cm or 1/2 inch. For sterling bracelets, some can be bent and adjusted due to the versatility of sterling silver.
I will ship it out to you nicely packaged within 1 business day via USPS. All packages are insured.
I want you to enjoy your Toqos jewelry. In case you are not satisfied with your item, you can return it within 14 days. All I ask for is that you send it back in perfect condition within that time frame.
