Vintage Navajo Sterling Silver Fluted Button & Natural Spider Web Turquoise Ring For Sale
Vintage Navajo Sterling Silver Ring
❀Very nice early Navajo ring.
❀This ring is C. 1920 and was made for the tourist trade, but by hand. The shank is hand wrought and cold chisel split with hand stamping even on the splits. It has a lightening arrow along the back of the band.
❀The stone is a fantastic spider web turquoise that was not treated. The turquoise is formed as nodules with chert brown matrix. The stone needs a gentle cleaning. I have not touched it. Set in a plain bezel.
❀Setting is a rectangular frame that is around an oval stone. The frame is formed with repousse fluted buttons all the way around the frame. The setting is embellished with four hand dropped raindrops on each side of the ring at the shank. (A raindrop ring)
❀Face of the ring measures almost 1" by 3/4".
❀The inside of the ring has tool marks and imperfections from primitive manufacture that makes it perfect!
❀Silver has a nice patina from age. I have not cleaned or polished it.
❀Not marked with silver content. Acid tests sterling or higher. Has no hallmarks what-so-ever.
❀Very good condition and a rare find.
❀Size 7 1/4.
❀Please note:I do not clean or polish any of my vintage pieces. Many pieces such as this one are more valuable in original patina and collectors want them grunge and all. Please scroll down and examine the photographs well. What you see is what you will get.
