This heavy Native American stamped Sterling silver ring was hand made by the late Navajo artist Darryl Becenti. The ring is set with a natural Number 8 turquoise stone, which is a pale robin's egg blue with webbed matrix. Then the ring is completely covered with deep stamp-work and applied fancy repousse and silver bead work. This ring works well for either a man or a woman.
The ring measures 1-inch wide at the front and narrows to 1/4-inch wide at the back. The ring weighs 18.3 grams and is a very comfortable ring to wear. Because of the wide band, the ring stays put on your finger (no twisting or turning). Size 10-1/2.
Brand new in perfect condition. It is stamped sterling and has Darryl Becenti's hallmark. Gift box & Certificate of Authenticity included.
Darryl Becenti was born in 1957 in Gallup. New Mexico and raised in Mexican Springs. He was taught silver work by his brothers-in-law, David & Leroy Reeves in 1980. Darryl was also a sand painter and a pencil & ink artist. He passed away recently.
