The Villa Grove mine, once known as Hall mine, is located northwest of the town of Villa Grove in the San Luis Valley of Colorado.

This piece is not signed, but is known to be by the named artist from family providence. The high domed stone measures 1" long by 5/8" wide, set in a hand fabricated smooth bezel, perfectly framed with silver twist wire. Beautiful hand crafted drops are placed on a triple split shank. The ring is a size 6.
