Top quality old-style Turquoise and Sterling Silver ring hand made by Navajo silversmith, Robert Shakey. The ring features a gorgeous ribbon turquoise stone, which has a bright green ribbon running across the sandy brown host rock. The stone is set in a simple straight bezel with a twist rope surrounding it. The setting is a fancy scalloped setting with stamped hogan beads at either end. The 4-way split ring shank is covered with engraved geometric designs across the back and measures 3/8 wide at the back.
The face of the ring measures a bit over 1-5/8 tall by 1 wide . It weighs 17 grams and is a size 8-1/4. Brand new in perfect condition. It is stamped sterling and I beleive it has Robert Shakey's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included and gift box included.
Robert Shakey is a Navajo man who lives in Gallup NM and is around 55 years old. He creates both cast and handmade jewelry.
