This innovative Native American handmade sterling silver ring was hand made by the master Native American silversmith, L. Bruce Hodgins. A sage amethyst agate is set into this deep carved shadowbox setting. Note the special design attention to the carved bezel and the ring shank - the fine hand stamping accentuates the setting and the stone.
The face of the ring measures a bit over 1 in diameter, the band narrows to 5/16 wide at the back. The ring weighs 28.5 grams. Size 11.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift Box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Hallmarked by the artist. Purchased directly and in person from the artist, before his death. Outstanding craftsmanship and one of a kind design, L. Bruce Hodgins provides the unexpected in native jewelry.
