Very nice vintage Navajo turquoise coral decorated leaf cast ring. This ring was made back when the silversmith's started completely from scratch. The silversmith has made and poured the silver for the cast band with signs of the silver being stretched and formed as the molten silver hardened and cured. The silversmith then used a beautiful cut and polished turquoise stone with heavy brown matrix (possibly a Bisbee Mine) and a piece of branch coral setting both in fine saw tooth bezels at opposite ends of the ring face. The artist adds a sun stamped silver button and a silver leaf that flows slightly over one part of the turquoise stone. The artist finishes by adding repeat sunrise stampwork on both sides of the band.

The ring face measures 1 1/8" by 11/16" across and weighs 14.8 grams. It's a size 10 1/4 and is unsigned sterling silver. The ring does show signs of wear, but not bad for it's age. Guessing the ring from the 60's?  $149.95
