The ring is stamped with the conjoined initials JM but we have not determined to whom those belong.The foundation of this ring is an oval silver platform scored on the edges with thin line impressions. The unique and magnificent aspect of the ring is the image of a blue-face female. She wears a dark black pueblo style dress over one shoulder and off the other one. Her blouse is white, and her face is blue. There is at Hopi, a female character known as the Hano Mana who has a blue face. Perhaps there is a similar personage at Zuni. The ring is stamped with the conjoined initials JM but we have not determined to whom those belong.
