This is a beautiful silver and turquoise ring signed by Jimmie Etsate. It has four light blue turquoise stones set inside oxidized silver "ropes."
This is a vintage handmade Zuni ring fashioned of silver and blue turquoise in a US size 7 and dating from the 1970's. This ring features four raised diamond shaped cabachons of blue turquoise each set in a bezel and framed by fine twisted round wire. The ring has a shank of split half round wire. This ring is signed by Jimmie Etsate. While this ring is not marked, I believe that it is sterling.

Tribal Affiliation: Zuni

Condition: Very good vintage condition with minimal wear. Turquoise in excellent lustrous condition and tight in the setting. The silver has some oxidation which may be partly the original design and partly from time. There is evidence of silver polish left on the ring. I will send it to you in the condition you see.
This is a design which can dress up or go with your jeans or everyday wear. Turquoise is the birthstone of December and is thought to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness.
