Coral was introduced to the Southwest by the Spaniards but was not used extensively until the late 1930s, when traders imported it to Zuni Pueblo. Most coral used in the Southwest came from the Mediterranean. Both Pueblo and Navajo artisans have worked with coral.

 

This Navajo Silver and Coral Floral Design Ring has nine coral cabs mounted in silver bezels and arranged in a flower design.  It is stamped Sterling on the back and has the initial S.  If there was another initial, it has been covered up with the shank.

 

A bracelet with a single coral stone that would make a good match with this ring is our Item Number C3864.15 (click here to veiw now).

 

Condition: original condition.  Two of the coral stones have a natural air pocket depression that existed in the coral from nature.

Provenance: from a gentleman from Santa Fe
