This top quality sterling silver turquoise ring was created by Gloria Begay, wife of the late Navajo silversmith, Kirk Smith. Gloria Begay always worked alongside her husband and we are glad to see she is carrying on the family tradition. If you are familiar with Kirk's work,you will see a lot of similarities - the vintage revival finished sterling silver, the quality of the stones and the whole overall look.
The genuine Kingman turquoise stones are a green turquoise color with beautiful golden matrix. The stones are set on a fancy triple wire shank ring. Like her husband, Gloria uses only the best stones and materials, choosing turquoise stones with vibrant colors. We know that it is Kingman turquoise but will have to assume that it is stabilized as most stones are these days.
The face of the ring measures 1-7/8" long and the ring weighs 18.2 grams. Exceptional quality and workmanship. Size 8-1/2 only.
Brand new in perfect condition. Stamped sterling and has Gloria Begay's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included and gift box included.
