Large vintage 50's-70's Navajo turquoise cowrie shell turtle ring. The silversmith has used a large cowrie shell as the turtle's shell and six (6) set turquoise stones as the head, legs, and tail. The turquoise used as the tail is triangular in shape. Each stone and shell are set into deep smooth bezels and the artist finishes the ring by attaching a thick solid half round wire band which has been hammered flat on the ends prior to soldering to the setting.

The large turtle measures 1 9/16" by 1" across and the shell stands 9/16" tall out of the bezel. It weighs 12.2 grams and is a size 8 1/2. Unsigned sterling silver. Very nice and large vintage turtle ring!  $119.95
