Although not used as frequently as turquoise in Native American jewelry, jasper is a stone with unique qualities that lends itself to fitting in with the Southwestern aesthetic. This well-made ring features a piece of jasper that combines deep shades of brown, black, tan and white.  The artist shaped the stone and set it in a handmade bezel and added a beautiful sunburst motif to the shank. Made by Diné of the Navajo Nation, this ring was extremely well executed and dates from the 1940s or 1950s. It is unsigned.


Condition: The Single Arrowhead Shaped Stone Jasper Ring is in very good condition.

Provenance: From a Colorado Southwest Indian Jewelry collection

Note: when we say Diné, as opposed to Navaho or Navajo, we are referring to the people and not the government.  Since 1969, their government refers to itself as the Navajo Nation.
