Description

Vintage Sterling Silver With Turquoise Navajo Sand Cast Ring

Lovely vintage sand or tufa cast ring with a turquoise center stone. Sand and tufa casting were some of the first styles of jewelry making the Navajo learned. Sand casting as a jewelry-making technique used by the Pueblo peoples of the Southwest dates back to the mid-seventeenth century. Silversmithing techniques were brought to the New World by the Spanish and taught to the people of Mexico. By the 1850s, Native peoples in the Four Corners area had acquired some silver work from Mexican craftsmen through trading. Wanting to know the art themselves, they traded livestock in exchange for silver-smith lessons.

This sand cast ring dates from the 1960s- 1970s and is a modern representative of these techniques learned long ago.

The ring measures 1 1/2" long and 1" wide and is a size 6 1/4 but can be professionally re-sized.
