Authentic Native American Navajo White Buffalo silver ring, handmade by Navajo silversmith Lyle Piasso. The natural White Buffalo stone is set in deep bezel, surrounded by stamped and cut designs. Three-way split ring shank.
The face of the ring measures 1 inch long by 3/4 inch wide.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Hallmarked by the artist with a P. The hallmark P is for Felix Perry but this doesn't look like his work. It looks more like Lyle Piaso's work, and I am wondering if the L is missing from the hallmark. I will try to get a confirmation as to who the artist actually was.
Gift box and Certificate of Authenticity included with your purchase. Brand new and in perfect condition.
White Buffalo is a white stone with black inclusions. It's sometimes called "white turquoise" but it is not turquoise. The black matrix is called Chert, the Chert often runs in various patterns throughout the white material. Occasionally you will find it in a spiderwebbing pattern which is rare and more valuable. White Buffalo comes from only one mine in Nevada, near Tonopah, which is owned by the Otteson family.
