This is a wonderful sterling silver ring by Modernist Arizona silversmith, H. Fred Skaggs. Totally hand made and studded with green aventurine stones that surround a glowing moonstone, all accented by tiny bead balls. Very rare in that it comes with its original box. Beautiful workmanship, beautiful style!
Well respected author Christie Romero, in her 3rd Edition of Warman's Jewelry, highlights Skaggs as a Mid Century Modern master. Skaggs moved to Scottsdale Arizona in 1956 where he opened a shop at the Lloyd Kiva Craft Center. Charles Loloma, famed Native American silversmith, gives Skaggs credit for inspiring him and teaching him to make jewelry. Romero goes on to say that "Skaggs' work is known to a few discriminating collectors...."
