The face of this Diné of the Navajo Nation silver and coral ring is diamond or cruciform. There are three coral cabs in the vertical position and three in the horizontal position, both directions highlighted by an additional four coral cabochons.

The shape of all the coral cabs is oval except the center one which is round. Each coral stone was set in a silver bezel which was then outlined with silver wire. Like a shadow box, the whole arrangement rests on a darkened silver background. This makes the coral pop even more.

The silver and coral ring is classic in style and exquisite in workmanship. It has a dainty approach because of the small coral cabs. The band is a simple silver loop (see below) that is currently made for a finger size 7-½ and will look great on anyone's hand.
