Large Sterling Silver Turquoise Ring
When one thinks of traditional Southwestern Native American jewelry this large and stunning turquoise ring is what comes to mind.
The striking turquoise cabochon measures approximately 1 5/16 inches by 5/8 inch or 33.5mm by 15.5mm.
The bezel set turquoise is surrounded by twisted wire and the outside border of the top is decorated with a chisel or stamp work design on plain sterling wire and silver beads.
The top of the ring measures 1 3/4 inches by 1 inch.
The heavy half round shank V's where it meets the top of the ring.
Since this ring is not signed I can not say if it was made by a Native American but the quality of workmanship and style indicates that it may have been.
