Navajo Single Turquoise Cab Set in Lacy Silver Wire Ring - C4070W
A series of small crescent-shaped pieces of silver mimic the petals of a flower surrounding a pretty, green turquoise cabochon in this lovely Navajo-made ring. An innovative Diné artist created this unique frame to highlight the beauty of an irregularly-shaped turquoise stone.
Rather than cut the turquoise to fit the setting, the artist made the setting fit the stone. The artist created an asymmetrical frame consisting of tiny silver wires shaped in half circles resembling the lacy texture of a flower.
