This Native American ring is of Zuni origin and exhibits the fine inlay work of these people. The ring tests sterling but has no marks. The top of the ring suggests a war bonnet, or possibly a bird's head. The ring is inlaid with white quartz, black onyx, dark red jasper, and turquoise. The quartz has a matte finish; the other stones are polished. Upon close inspection, signs of handwork, such as beveling, can be seen. The ring is a ladies' size 5 1/2. The top of the ring measures 1 1/16" X 1 1/16." The ring is vintage, ca. 1970's, and has been worn. It is in excellent, although not perfect, condition; the band is just a bit twisted (it does not effect the wearability or comfort). This charming ring weighs 4.5 grams.
