From the oldest known turquoise mine in North America, a magnificent Cerrillos turquoise stone became the centerpiece of this circa 1940s Navajo ring. Formed at the base of a volcano, this mine has produced over seventy-five different shades of turquoise including this lovely deep green.
The Cerrillos cabochon is beautifully framed by a sterling silver hard coiled rope finished by what appears to be a continuous line of looping sterling border. The split ring shank leads to a solid wide band.
