 NEW!  Beautiful Navajo Sleeping Beauty turquoise decorated sunburst shields ring! The ring displays a nice slightly oval cut and polished blue turquoise stone with dark brown and tan matrix from the Sleeping Beauty Mine. The silversmith sets the stone into a saw tooth bezel and wraps it with twisted wire. The artist mounts the stone to a solid double half round wire band adding a piece of twisted wire across the bottom and soldering all three (3) wires together. They finish by attaching solid silver shields on both sides adding sunburst design to both.


The ring face measures approximately 3/4" by 9/16" across and weighs 8.9 grams. It's a size 9 3/4 and hallmarked R.B. Spirit Bear - STERLING by the Navajo/Running Bear bench silversmith. Guaranteed Sterling Silver. The Sleeping Beauty Mine was recently shutdown and the silversmiths are working with the last of the turquoise available. Unless there's a change in the mining, this turquoise will become very hard to get in a few years. Beautiful Navajo crafted turquoise ring!  $99.95
