Turquoise Engagement Ring with Topaz

Who would have ever thought that dinosaur bone could be used in jewelry or that it could be found in so many colors?  We have been fascinated with dinosaur bone since cutting our first piece years ago and it's no wonder so many of our customers share the same fascination for dinosaurs and our dinosaur bone rings.  How cool is it to wear a piece of jewelry inlaid with a piece of fossilized dinosaur bone that is 150 million years old!  Agatized dinosaur bone is both rare and beautiful with only a small percentage of bone completing the process to become a highly agatized fossil.  Top quality dinosaur bone can be found in a wide range of colors but the most popular colors for jewelry are red and gray.  We take a different approach with our inlay technique and ring designs than some jewelers.  We prefer to inlay the bone in individual sections across the top of the ring rather than one continuous piece going all the way around the ring.  This allows for some size adjustment and simple replacement of just one section of the dinosaur bone should it be become damaged.

​​​Turquoise is one of the world's oldest known gemstones with its use dating back to 3,000 years ago when Chinese artisans first began carving it.   Ancient Egyptian pharaohs and rulers adorned themselves with turquoise jewelry and used it in their elaborate burial masks.  If you have ever toured the Southwest United States, you have probably seen plenty of Native American turquoise jewelry and are familiar with the beautiful blue and green colors of turquoise.  Our turquoise  engagement rings and wedding rings are inlaid with top quality turquoise from mines across the Southwest and some mines in China.  Some of our customers are fans of spiderweb turquoise and its random patterns of veining while others prefer plain blue or green for their turquoise wedding rings.   One of our most popular turquoise engagement ring styles combines both the spiderweb type and plain blue for a very unique look.  We also offer a variety of center stones for your engagement ring including Moissanite, sapphire, topaz and diamonds.  All of our inlaid turquoise engagement rings have matching wedding bands available if you would like to have a matching bridal set.  Men's wedding rings are available with turquoise inlay to match the women's rings.

Our lab created opal rings are different.  We go the extra mile to make the laboratory grown opal in our rings look as much like natural Australian opal as possible.  This involves strategic cutting to capture the opal's more random fire and flashes in one specific area and discarding the more uniform pieces.  All of this means more opal cost and effort, but in the end the final product is something special.   We have worked with natural Australian opal for over 30 years and that experience is a huge advantage when cutting laboratory created opal and creating stunning lab opal rings.  We use only top quality lab opal and our craftsmanship is second to none.   You will immediately see and feel a difference in our lab opal jewelry versus others.  From our heavy weight mountings and precision fit inlay to the spectacular fire and colors of the masterfully cut lab opal - the difference is clear.  We are proud to offer lab opal as an alternative to natural opal that is both more affordable and more durable without sacrificing any of the beauty and fire.  A  Hileman lab opal ring is the perfect combination of beauty and budget.
