MATERIALS & ARTISTRY
Carved Silveris done by hand with chisels and rotary tools. William Henry works with the
finest silversmiths to create elaborate (and durable) carvings in sterling silver.
In many cases, we use colored sapphires and other precious stones, set in 18K gold bezels, to further decorate these masterful carvings.
The Kingman Turquoise Mine in Arizona is one of the oldest and highest producing
Turquoise Mines in America. It was originally discovered by prehistoric Indians well
1,000 years ago. Kingman Turquoise is known for its beautiful sky blue color and
produces many variations of blue Turquoise.
Our Zinc-Matrix Turquoise is made with Kingman Turquoise infused with zinc, creating a striking contrast between the soft blues of the Turquoise and the shiny, contemporary look of the metal.
