This beautiful unmarked Navajo early style ring focuses on the beautiful Bisbee turquoise stone and not the surrounding silver. Bisbee turquoise is quite rare and has not been mined for many years. You can easily see the brilliant blue and chocolate matrix in this stone. It bears no mark as to artist which is not unusual and is guaranteed to be sterling. The ring has a sterling ring guard on it to make it smaller. Without the guard it is approximately a size 6. The guard can easily be removed, or the ring can be worn on the little finger. In addition, it is easy to shape the ring guard if one wishes. The split shank ending in raindrops adds an interesting design to the sides leaving the stone itself to be the centerpiece. The stone measures 1" by 3/4" at the longest and widest parts. It is very slightly rounded and is a very large stone with good depth as seen from the sides. It weighs 8.75 grams on my jewelry scale, most of which is turquoise. It is a natural stone with stunning color. What a great addition to your vintage Native American jewelry collection.
