This wonderful top of the line sterling silver and multi-stone inlay ring was made by famed Native American artist David Tune (Navajo/Creek). The ring features a raised cobblestone inlay using a variety of stones & shells, including turquoise, coral, ivory, lapis and more. The edges of the ring are also inlaid all around the face of the ring.
The face of the ring ring is mounted on a very thick shank that is wide at one end and gradually gets slimmer as it meets the other side. The narrow side of the shank is intentionally un-attached to the back of the ring, so the ring adjusts from a size 9-1/2 to size 11. The heavy shank rests against the back of the ring, is very strong and will keep its position, once you have adjusted it. The shank looks like it has been tufa cast and is beautifully stamped with David Tune's sun symbol.
The face of the ring measures 1-1/2 long by 5/8 wide. The ring weighs 19 grams. David Tune's rings are suitable for men and women and are worn & loved by both. His jewelry reminds me of colorful jig-saw puzzles pieces.
Hallmarked with David Tune's hallmark and also stamped Sterling. Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift box and Certificate of Authenticity included with your purchase.
