Item # 702R-Lg Vintage Navajo Oblong Turquoise Crescent Moon Ring Sz 12 1/2

89.95

Large vintage Navajo oblong turquoise decorated crescent moon wire ring! The large ring displays a beautiful oblong cut and polished light blue-green turquoise stone with slight brown matrix on the side. The stone appears to have originally been used as a necklace bead whereas it has a hole drilled through it at one end. We've had some rings in the past where the silversmith has used old turquoise necklace beads that must have broken in half or chipped in the past, but still had a "good side". This appears to be such a bead. The silversmith sets the stone into a thick scallop/serrated cut silver bezel and wraps it with twisted wire. The artist continues decorating by running repeat crescent moon wires down both sides. All mounted to a blackened scorched silver base setting. The artist finishes by attaching a solid three fingered split shank hammered flat wire band.

The ring face measures approximately 1 3/8" by 7/8" across and weighs 10.1 grams. It's a large size 12 1/2 and is unsigned Sterling Silver.  Beautiful vintage Navajo crafted ring!  $89.95
