COMMENTS: Ray Tracey is known as one of the most outstanding Native American jewelers. Born and raised on the Navajo reservation in Arizona, Ray began making jewelry at the age of 9. His professional jewelry-making career began in 1977. Ray's multiple-award-winning designs reflect a combination of inspiration by the richness of his ancestral history and his fashion-forward, contemporary insightfulness. Inlaying vibrant stones such as lapis, corals, opal, sugilite and turquoise in strikingly asymmetrical patterns, Ray's work is unmistakable. This ring has an elongated design measuring 1 1/4" knuckle to knuckle. The ring is heavy and sturdily made. As with many of his pieces, this ring includes inlaid purple sugilite, glittering blue opal and black onyx. Hallmarked with Ray's "R with wings" inside as well as the 14k gold karat mark, this is indisputably his creation. The ring has a sizing bar inside the shank making this ring fit like a 6. Sizing is available if needed. The ring comes with a photocopy of Ray's paperwork, see photo. Circa 1980's. Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age. Items will be cleaned but natural patina will be preserved if applicable. Polishing to near new is always FREE upon request!
