This Navajo turquoise ring features a stone in the clear bright blue of a desert sky, just before the heat of the day sets in. The heavy sterling setting was created by the hand of a pueblo artisan. Beautiful feathers and scroll work are applied with precision to frame the stone. This ring is a statement in bold elegance that any gentleman would be proud to wear.
The condition is excellent, but not original. This piece came to me as an empty setting, so the hand of a more recent artisan jeweler can be seen in the gentle shaping of the original sawtooth setting to hold this new stone. At some point in it’s history, the entire double band at the back was replaced, possibly in the process of resizing. The band is solid and secure, just as you would hope.
This Navajo turquoise ring is currently size 13. The design measures approximately 30 mm from top to bottom and 50 mm parallel to the band, extending down onto the shoulders of the ring. That translates to 1.25 inches tall and 2 inches around the band (this measurement includes the crown of the stone). The back is marked Sterling to confirm .925 silver purity and it weighs 14 grams overall.
