Genuine Native American Indian Navajo Zuni Hopi Kewa Sterling Silver Jewelry
Effective October 1, 2019, I can no longer sell or ship jewelry to customers residing in the state of Kansas due to Kansas's extremely complicated remote seller sales tax laws. In order to ship to Kansas, I would be required to collect and remit city, state and local sales tax on all items shipped to Kansas. ALL states, except for Kansas, have a small seller exemption for small sellers like me. Hopefully Kansas lawmakers will remedy this situation soon. I apologize for this inconvenience.

This exquisite vintage Zuni turquoise MOP inlay bracelet & ring set was created by Zuni lapidarist and silversmiths, Wayne & Josie Panteah. The jewelry is also inlaid with a beautiful smokey shimmering brown stone or shell. I am not sure what it is - could it be tortoise shell or smokey mother of pearl? The inlay reaches all the way around to the back of the bracelet.

The bracelet measures 5/8 wide and has an inside end-to-end measurement of 5 plus a non-adjustable opening gap of 1-1/8. The bracelet weighs 40.4 grams.

The face of the matching ring measures 1-1/8 long by 1/2 wide and weighs 8.8 grams. It is a size 4-1/2.

Wayne is one of four famous Panteah brothers, all of whom are accomplished Zuni silversmiths & lapidarists. Wayne and his brothers Martin, Augustine and Florence Panteah are all featured in the first two volumes of the book Zuni: The Art and the People by Barbara Bell as well as other Zuni jewelry reference books.
