This is an early Native American sterling silver and turquoise ring dating from the 1940's- early 1950's. This ring is delicate and pretty, measuring only approximately 1/2" from north to south. The turquoise stone is a beautiful shade of true turquoise blue and has no matrix at all which was considered best at this time. It is marked, "Sterling" and is size 6. It is in excellent condition with wonderful black patina.
