Artist signature of G. Nez, Diné of the Navajo Nation JewelerThe large milky white gemstone is a feature of the ring. It overpowers the scalloped silver edges on its platform as well as overpowering the turquoise, however both silver and turquoise are important to the overall impact. The ring certainly makes a statement.

The back of the ring has the name G. Nez scratched into the silver in cursive style. It is not the published manner of Gibson Nez's signature, and there was no other G. Nez listed in reference books, so information on the artist will remain unknown at the present.
