Beautiful and bold vintage 50's-70's Navajo turquoise, coral, and bear claw decorated ring. The silversmith has created a large setting to accommodate all the decoration! The main attraction is the large bear claw set into a scallop cut claw holder with sunrise stampwork. The artist also adds a blue polished turquoise nugget with black matrix along with a stick of branch coral. Both set into saw tooth bezels and mounted next to the claw. The artist decorates with a silver feather and bird wing along with two (2) scrolls above the claw, a stout claw guard that runs down the outer edge of the claw with a melted drop at the tip, and two (2) silver drops that separate the turquoise and coral. The artist has mounted the setting to a silver band with decorative stamped half round wire that runs the outer ridge of the band and across the bottom. Also attached to the band are twisted wires, silver button, and scrolls on both sides.

The ring face measures 1 3/4" by 1" across and weighs 22.2 grams. It's a size 8 1/4 and displays an old IHMSS (Indian Handmade Sterling Silver) mark along with the artist hallmark HH. The claw has a hole, but is still solid. This style has and is still popular with Navajo silversmith claw rings. Exception is the old IHMSS mark.  $198.95
