The turquoise in this ring is all natural with very little matrix.  The individual cabs are beautiful sky blue in color and have imperfections that are natural.  The Navajo Silver and Turquoise Floral Design Ring has a charming appeal as if made by and for its Navajo creator. 

The silver shank branches out at the base of the ring into three sections.  At the end of each of the branches is a silver dot, a little extra touch not normally applied by most artisans.

 

Condition: very good condition with evidence of having been worn

Provenance: from the collection of a family from Santa Fe
