This contemporary Native American handcrafted Sterling Silver Multi-gem Micro-Inlaid ring was a collaboration between Rick Tolino and Vance King - Vance did the beautiful inlay and Rick Tolino did the silver.
The ring features a multitude of semi-precious stones - lapis, turquoise, coral & lab opal. The scene is a colorful kachina against a starry night sky with inlaid silver stars. The colorful stone to stone inlay is impeccable. The inlay section is flanked by sterling silver overlay sections featuring the Kokopelli figure.
The Ye'ii (pronounced yay) Spirit, is a depiction of a spirit considered by the Navajo to be a go-between between man and the Creator. Yeiis control natural forces in and on the earth, such as day and night, rain, wind, sun, etc. A very special kind of ye'ii is the Yei'bi'chai, grandparent spirit or talking God who can speak with man, telling him how to live in harmony with all living things by following a few rules of behavior and using only the basic things he needs to survive.
The band style ring measures 5/8 inches wide at the front and 1/4 inches wide at the back. Weighs 22.6 grams. Size 12-1/2.
