Lovely...Vintage Sterling Silver Navajo Ring. Size 6

This Ring is executed with Genuine Turquoise Cabochon Buttons all around the ring.

Elegant and practical as the ring might rotate on your finger, but always looks terrific.

The Cabochon stones are each 2mm and set in connected antiqued ovals for a total of 7 cabochons.

Nicely executed, somewhat different styled, Navajo Art.

The ring and shank are sterling silver and the bezels around the stones are .999 fine silver.

The average width of this ring is 7mm and the total weight is 2.50 grams.

The silver was given an antiqued look (please read the information listed below on the traditional antiqued look).

We purchased this item in the late 1970's and we have never used or worn it. This item was purchased at a Navajo Reservation near Gallup, N.M. We used to have a turquoise and silver jewelry business in the late 1970's and this is one of our leftover inventory pieces. We are getting up there in age and have decided to let go of the leftover pieces we were holding on to.

Jewelry Antiquing: Gold and silversmiths will coat a finished piece of jewelry with an oxidizing agent (fluid) which turns the entire piece dull black (looks terrible at first). Then when the piece is buffed, the raised areas and the tops of the silver/gold decorations,etc. and only these areas will shine brilliantly; while the lower/beneath areas remain black. This technique "sets off" or accentuates the shined areas and gives the piece a faux antique look. Antiquing can give a very nice finished piece a very beautiful appearance.

Word of Caution: We advise not getting the ring wet as under the Cabochon stones is sawdust (this is the traditional American Indian technique for setting the stones) for cushioning. If the sawdust gets wet and pressure is put on the stone it might compress the sawdust and it will stay compressed when it dries. This makes the stone loose in the bezel around it. What may happen next is the stone will simply fall out. It would be very expensive to replace as a new stone must be cut and shaped to fit the bezel.
