Seven teardrop-shaped petit point cut turquoise stones surround a single turquoise drop in this late 20th century ring. An unknown but very talented Zuni Pueblo lapidary artist cut and shaped the turquoise pieces and set them in sawtooth bezels on an oxidized shadow-box frame.

Interspersed between the stones are silver drops. It is an excellent example of traditional Zuni stonework. The well-crafted ring is unsigned.  


Condition: The Zuni Ring with Petit Point Flower Design  is in excellent condition.

Provenance: From a Southwest Indian Jewelry Colorado Collection
