Beautiful sterling silver oblong domed decorated ring. Made by a Navajo benchsmith while working for The Maisel's Trading Post in Albuquerque, NM. The ring displays an oblong hollow silver dome with double silver raindrops at each of the four directional paths. The silversmith fills between the raindrops with twisted wire. They mount the setting to a continuous circular band that's spliced twice to appear as a split shank finishing with stampwork on both sides.

The ring face measures 1 1/8" by 1/2" across and weighs 5.5 grams. It's a dainty size 4 3/4 and is hallmarked with the Maisels Kachina - STERLING by the silversmith. Maisel's Trading Post was first established in 1939 during the tourist rush to the west coast. At one time it was the largest store of it's kind. The grandson has re-opened the business and it's now called Skip's.   $42.95
