This 1920s-period silver and turquoise ring features elaborate designs made with the buying public in mind. On each side of the ring is a coiled snake in raised silver. On the bottom of the band are two stamped "whirling logs" or swastikas. One of these is worn partially away-a good indication of many years of having been worn.

A beautiful dark green turquoise gemstone is mounted on top of the ring, secured within a silver bezel. This is a very collectible item of early Navajo jewelry.


Condition: very good condition with wear pattern to band

Provenance: this Silver and Turquoise Ring with Snakes and Whirling Log Designs is from a private collection
