Here's a handmade, turquoise and silver ring that's been part of our personal Native American jewelry collection for several years.
Now that our collection has gotten a bit to large we've painfully decided to sell a few pieces, including this wonderful ring.
This handmade old beauty features two turquoise stones that are set in silver saw tooth bezels. The artist further adorned the ring with some handmade silver applications.
This size 5+1/2 ring weighs a very comfortable 8.2 grams and it measures 1+1/8" long.
There is no artist's hallmark nor any indication of the silver content.
Despite it's age and travels the ring is still in quite good condition. The stones are set firmly in their bezels and are not cracked nor chipped. The silver shows wear appropriate for it's age.
It can use some cleaning but we'll leave that for it's next owner. We do not clean vintage jewelry as most collectors prefer to receive these older pieces "as is".
This ring will certainly make a wonderful addition to your jewelry collection, or a terrific gift.
