  • Category: Jewelry Rings
  • Origin: Zuni Pueblo
  • Medium: Turquoise and Sterling Silver
  • Size: 2” long x ¾” wide; Ring Size: 6-¼
  • Item # C4104F
  • Price: $595.00

A skilled Zuni Pueblo lapidary artist fashioned this mid-century ring made of multiple pieces of finely cut turquoise. Each small stone was set into a handmade sawtooth bezel and placed on the base. Two small pieces of twisted wire separate the rows of turquoise and multiple silver drops are interspersed in between the stones. It is a very attractive, well-made silver and turquoise ring. The back is stamped Zuni N.M. but there is not a hallmark of an individual artist.


Condition: The Zuni Pueblo Snake Eye Ring is in very good condition. All of the stones are secure in their bezels.

Provenance: The ring is from a Colorado Southwest Indian Jewelry collector
