This listing is for a much older vintage Zuni ring made of sterling silver and natural turquoise stones. This older handcrafted Zuni ring is beautifully made and in excellent vintage condition. The stones have beautiful pastel color qualities with subtle matrixes running throughout.
Each stone sits securely inside raised straight edge bezels while slightly protruding out. With the stones being set like this and the extremely dark patina its a dead giveaway that this ring is from an earlier period.
The center of the ring features 2 snake eye stones with silver droplets on each side. Classic twisted rope surrounds the two stones followed by an oval row of the teardrop stones. The bezeled stones all sit over an extremely thick bed of silver and sit rather high off the top of the ring face.
For the older age of the ring, the bezels and stones are in amazing condition. This ring was very well made with a heavy thick gauge silver.
The double shank band is thick and hearty. It splits as it reaches the back of the ring face for extra stability. A beautiful example of classic Zuni work.Waiting to be cherished and enjoyed today..... And handed down to loved ones in the future. Face of ring measures - 1-1/2 long by 1-1/4 wide. Teardrop stones measure - 5/16 long by 1/8 wide.
