Large heavy vintage Navajo/Zuni Kings Manassa cast ring. It’s been hallmarked by both a Navajo silversmith and a Zuni silversmith. They created a large heavy sandcast ring band and mounted a bulging oval cut and polished Kings Manassa stone set into a slit smooth bezel. The artist added shooting sun rays across both sides of the cast band. I believe the heavy cast silver ring band was made by Sam Begay and the stone was cut, polished, and mounted by Zuni artist Elliot Qualo (b.1930-1974).

The ring face measures 1 1/16” by 11/16” across and weighs a healthy 28 grams. It’s a size 9 3/4 and as stated above is hallmarked with Elk Antlers, which is Elliot Qualo hallmark along with S.B. which is Sam Begay hallmark. It’s also stamped STERLING on the side of the band. Heavy vintage cast ring with beautifully cut and polished Kings Manassa turquoise! $253.95
