Extra large vintage Navajo double turquoise double feather ring. The silversmith has created a very large mens ring using two (2) cut and polished turquoise nuggets setting them into hand cut serrated bezels each wrapped with heavy twisted wire. Considering the stones are an even green throughout, I want to say they've always been green and didn't turned this color over the years. They do look nice! The artist added two (2) silver drops to space between the stones. They are mounted to a somewhat similar cigar band that's been hand cut rolling down to a thinner band across the bottom. Mr Vandever decorated each side of the band with a large silver drop along with a large silver feather. which are reversed on the opposite side. He finished with the stampwork of a partial sun rising from behind the feathers.

This is a very large ring measuring 1 1/4" by 1" across and weighing in at 21.7 grams. It's a size 10 1/4 and is hallmarked WCV somewhat overlapped by noted Navajo silversmith William Vandever. If it's not considered a collector's item now it will be in a few years. Very nice example of early handmade native rings with beautiful green turquoise!  $249.95
