This Diné of the Navajo Nation silver ring with coral cabs is rather unique in style. The silver face of the ring could be described as that of a warrior's shield, but bent in an extreme curve. The silver has been blackened to better set off the coral and silver drops. Seven coral cabs cover the face of the ring. The center coral cab is surrounded by small silver drops. On one edge of the face are three large silver drops, and on the opposite edge are no silver drops. It appears that the jeweler designed the ring for the side with the silver drops to be on the outside of the finger. The jeweler not only designed the ring but suggested the way it should be worn.

The silver band surrounding the face of the ring cleverly continues circling around to form the band of the ring as it passes the large silver dots. On the opposite side, it attaches to the edge of the face. The ring is very unique in style and charm.
