You will not be disappointed with this fantastic turquoise snake eye Zuni handcrafted sterling silver ring, created by master artist Steven Haloo, with twenty-five (25) individually bezel set genuine turquoise snake-eyes (5 rows of 5 stones each). The front of the ring measures about 3/4 inch tall by 5/8 inch wide approximately. There is a double rope design down each side of the ring and silver beads between every stone. Imagine the incredible amount of work that goes into making one of these rings! Only the Zuni have mastered working with such small stones. The stones are all perfectly matched sky blue colors.
This ring was made by the Zuni artist Steven Haloo, son of Peter III and Vivian Haloo. Peter and Vivian Haloo have been creating beautiful snake-eye jewelry since 1965. Some people feel that Steven's jewelry is even better than that of his parents, if that is possible. When I look carefully at Steven's work, I see that the turquoise stones are shaped like the tips of little eggs (whereas Peter & Vivian's stones are more round like little balls). Every stone is identical to the next, in size, shape and color. The Haloo family are the masters of this style jewelry this ring will only appreciate in value over time, so it will make a great investment.
The ring is brand new and in perfect condition. All stones are secure in their settings. No chipped or cracked stones. Certificate of Authenticity and gift box included. Weighs approx 6.6 grams. Size 8. Hallmarked SH.
