Every one of the seven small gem-grade stones in this early 20th century Navajo Silver and Turquoise Ring has a unique beauty of its own. There are five round stones and two teardrop shaped stones set in a flower-like design. Interspersed between the stones are silver drops, some which have been stamped.

The placement of the silver drops draws one’s attention to the lovely deep color of the turquoise. A section of twisted wire frames the stones. It is obvious that the unknown artisan was an extremely skilled silversmith.


Condition: The Navajo Ring with Seven High Grade Stones is in very good condition.

Provenance: From an extensive Southwest Indian Jewelry collection in Colorado
