Vintage Zuni Snake Ring By Effie Calavza
This vintage sterling silver and turquoise snake ring was created by the famous Zuni silversmith Effie Calavaza.
Effie creates several different sizes of this ring with this one being the largest size with the top measuring 1 1/4 by 9/16 inches.
Bezel set in scalloped bezels are two semi oval shape turquoise cabochons measuring approximately 9/16 by 7/16 inch each.
Signed Effie C Zuni.
Although today Effie's daughters are involved in the family business creating her distinctive style this ring is from a collection I purchased from a retired dealer that sold Native American jewelry during the 1960's to 1970's.
