The simplicity of the early rings is responsible for their popularity. This Sterling Silver and Turquoise Navajo-made Jewelry Ring fits into this vintage.

A beautiful blue-green all-natural turquoise cab is securely held in place by a silver bezel that is sculpted around its edge. Around the bezel is a twisted silver wire rope. The ring is supported by a split shank silver band. It is these simpler silver rings that are the early ones. Later, it became popular to add silver adornments such as leaves around the stone.

 

Condition: excellent condition

Provenance: from a family collection from Grants, New Mexico
