This is a very pretty vintage Native American Sterling Silver ring. I thought it was a Navajo old pawn ring until I saw that there IS some sort of signature mark on the inside of the band, and I haven't tracked that down yet. It may be UTS or JTS and in either case the "s" could be a 5 or even some particular symbol. I will keep looking. I have checked with a jeweler who verified that it is Sterling, old, and that the turquoise is real. I took photo #3 to show you that the band of the ring which splits into a Y shape before joining the top of the ring on either side, has been bent. I have posted my most critical photo of this so you will be well informed. I wear a 5 1/2 ring, and this one is quite comfortable on my ring finger. The jeweler said that in its out of round shape right now it measured 5 1/2. The top of the ring is approx 1" across, about the size of a US quarter (see photo #4). The turquoise itself is lovely with an attractive matrix as you can see in photo #1. The top of the cabochon is smooth, matrix included, and while not quite round, is 5/8 inches in diameter. Its bezel is surrounded by a wire twist, and beyond that are flower petal/scalloped edges rolled back in toward the wire twist area for a nice smooth finished edge all around. That is why in the first photo the edge sometimes gives the appearance of not being continuous. The ring base was cut larger to accommodate the rolled edge finish.The ring weighs .2oz or 6g.

If you have questions (OR ANSWERS) for me about this ring, please contact me.
