Beautiful vintage Zuni six (6) stone turquoise bird ring! The ring consists of three (3) sections with each section containing two (2) round cut and polished turquoise stones. Each stone is set into a very fine cut saw tooth bezel with two (2) small silver drops separating the stones. The stones have turned green from natural human oils and acids over the years meaning they are untreated non-stabilized turquoise. All three (3) sections have been oxide blackened with the outer rims lined with smooth wire. The artist extends one wire on each section and attaches a silver drop to the end. The artist continues by adding a stack of three (3) silver drops to the top to resemble the birds head with two sections as the wings and the third section as the body and tail of the bird. The artist finishes by attaching a single wire band.

The ring face measures approximately 1" by 1" across and weighs 4.2 grams. It's a size 6 and is unsigned sterling silver. Very nice Zuni crafted ring!  $38.95
