This petite Native American turquoise and silver comes from an old New Mexico trader's collection, circa 1970's. The four turquoise stones are into silver bezels and there are silver raindrop beads accenting each stones. Zuni or Navajo made.
The ring weighs 2.7 grams. Size 5-1/2. Excellent vintage condition. circa 1970's.
As is the case more often that not with the earlier Native American jewelry, this piece is not marked for silver content or maker. However, it tests positive as coin silver (.900/90%) or sterling silver (.925/92.5%). When I test jewelry for silver content, I never drop the testing solution directly on the piece of jewelry since the acid could damage the piece. Rather I rub the piece against a testing stone and drop the acid on the testing stone.
