Why is the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise almost free of matrix or markings in the stone?
For Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, we closely monitor the range of blue color and the level of mottling, matrix and markings we will accept. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise can have all of these markings in the stone, but QVC currently accepts only Sleeping Beauty Turquoise that is free of markings.

What is matrix?
Turquoise deposits usually form in iron-rich host rock which tends to create dark brown or tan markings called matrix.

Where is Turquoise mined?
Turquoise is found in only a few places on earth: dry and barren regions where acidic, copper-rich groundwater seeps downward and reacts with minerals that contain phosphorus and aluminum. Some areas that most of the turquoise has been mined: Arizona, Mexico and China. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is from the Sleeping Beauty mine outside Globe, Arizona. The mine got its name because the mountain where it is mined resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with her arms crossed.

How can we continue to sell Sleeping Beauty Turquoise if the mine is closed?
QVC suppliers have acquired large quantities of rough turquoise when they learned the mine was closing. We have been using these lots of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise for our jewelry.

The Sleeping Beauty mine is currently closed and, at this time, there is no new production of the Sleeping Beauty stones.

VicenzaSilver Sterling Oval Turquoise Ring 3.5 5 8 8
Unhappy Ring Girl The stone I received had two chips in it so back it went. I would have returned the ring even if the stone didn't have the chips because I felt that the stone looked fake. What I think is happening is that when the manufacturer stabilizes the stone they are coating the stones too much of what ever substance is used to stabilize the stones, thus giving the stone the appearance of being fake. My second hypothesis is that stones are color enhanced-which I do not like. I purchased two rings from Q and both went back because both of them looked like costum jewelry not real stones. I will add a disclaimer to this review for those of you who base your purchasing decisions on the reviews. I am super picky about my turquoise and most of my pieces were purchased in Sedona. 10-16-12
Big, Bold Ring! This ring is very comfortable on the finger even though it goes knuckle to knuckle. There is substantial silver used, and the workmanship is great. The stone is a little more green than shown on air or online and there is a little more matrix in the stone than any of the ones shown. But, I am keeping it. 10-14-12
not true to size Sizing was tight and uncomfortable. Had to return and the next size up was no longer available. Hate it when reviewers say the sizing is right...and it's not. 10-10-12
Spectacular!!! Truly a ring for all ages!! I purchased this ring for myself, my 17yr old daughter loves it so much I came back for one for her, my son liked it so much I bought one for his girlfriend for Christmas. One thing to note is I think it runs a little big so I had to return and size down 2 of the rings. 09-12-12
FABULOUS True to size and spectacular looking. I don't like the SW look so this is way cool. It is a very vivid turquoise stone with spectacular silver stair step setting. I live in this one. It is comfortable and very wearable. Could not be happier. 08-26-12
Turquoise heaven I just recently become a fan of this gemstone. I had bought a turquoise pendent and earrings previously. Now I've complimented those pieces with this heavenly turquoise ring. This ring arrived on time in a white pouch with a slip of tarnish protector. It was a nice presentation, but the real prize was inside the pouch. The sterling silver setting is substantial. The turquoise has a lightly, marbled matrix throughout it. Almost angelic. 07-27-12
Very Nice , CLASSY The ring is a true show stopper, with the high polished silver and the bright turquoise center stone... Oh My!... I have alot of turquoise, this is truly a classy piece and shows well on my hand. Fits well on my finger. Not heavy. I do have long fingers and a large hand so it is not huge for my hand.....................I Love it...My stone looks like the one pictured.. Nice..... 07-09-12
Did not live up to my expectations..... Had my eye on this ring for some time, so was thrilled when it went on sale! The online and TV presentations depicted a ring with a beautiful sterling setting and a lovely turquoise. When it arrived, it did indeed have a beautiful sterling setting, nicely weighted, and was true to size. However, the ring I received was fitted with a very disappointing turquoise...not the typical matrix found in turquoise. It was spotted. I own several turquoise rings purchased from QVC; this is the first I have felt compelled to return. Will place an order for a replacement of this ring and hope to receive one that is more to my liking. 07-09-12
