Although this ring is unsigned, due to its silver and turquoise materials, it is the style created by a Diné artist of the Navajo Nation.  A band of silver was seamlessly extended to make this ring a larger size.  The band branches  on either side of the face elements, supporting it with style.  A strong rectangle silver bezel was formed to house the turquoise and is framed on either side by separate pieces of silver that have been stamped.  Silver twisted wire defines the edge of the silver plate.  The turquoise gemstone is veined with a web of iron pyrite deposits that remind one of marbling, giving it a very unique presentation.


Condition: This Navajo Silver and Rectangular Turquoise was increased to become size 10.5, and has some patina to the back of the ring face and is in very good condition

Provenance: from a private collection
