This ring is in the style of those made by a Diné of the Navajo Nation, but we cannot be sure of such an attribution.  The two cream color settings appear to be fossilized ivory.  They are set in silver bezels that were contoured to fit the curve of the ring band.  In the center of the ring is an oval coral setting.  The ring is spectacular and has a modern appeal that would indicate that it was fashioned by a jeweler with expert design abilities.


Condition: very good condition

Provenance: this Diné Silver Ring with Coral and Fossilized Ivory Settings is from the collection of a client from Oklahoma
