Vintage Southwestern Sterling Silver & Turquoise Ring
❀Vintage Southwestern sterling silver , black coral and turquoise ring.
❀This ring was made Navajo style by the late silversmith Dale Anderson. Dale was also a dealer in Native American jewelry. He was active from the early 1970's until the early 1990's when he passed away. I purchased a large amount of his old store stock that has been in storage for 20 years. This ring is part of that estate. Dale was anglo so I cannot list his personal work as Navajo, but it is good, solid fine work. I tried to learn if he was schooled by Navajo but there was no information available. Would not be surprised if it was so.
❀This ring is set channel style with genuine turquoise and black coral. The channels are brass.
❀The face of the ring measures 1 1/8" by 1/2".
❀Size 7.5. Weighs 7 grams.
❀Not much tarnish as most of the lot was protected from the elements. Looks brand new, but it is at the least 20 years old and could be as old as 45 years old. Never sold, never worn.
❀Not marked with metal purity. I acid tested it to be sure and it is sterling silver. Stamp marked with his DA mark.
❀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. Often times polishing a vintage piece can devalue it by 80%. Please scroll down and examine the photographs well. What you see is what you will get.
❀Best offer option is not available on this ring.
❀What a great find!
