Harry H. Begay has been making silver jewelry for over 40 years. His work is ingot work, meaning that it is hand wrought in the traditional style. Unlike many modern silversmiths who use sterling silver products purchased from a jewelry supply house (like sheet silver, triangle wire, twist wire, etc.), Harry makes every part of his jewelry and begins by melting silver ingots in a crucible, pouring it out and hammering it into the desired shapes. Such work requires multiple annealings (heating and cooling the metal) between hammering and is practiced by few Navajo silversmiths today. This makes Harry's work very collectible and sometimes difficult to obtain. We have been waiting many months for his rings.

This heavy sterling silver ring is completely covered with deep stamp-work, fancy repousse work and has scalloped edges. This ring works well for either a man or a woman.

The ring measures 1-3/8 inch wide at the front and narrows to about 1/8 inch wide at the back. The ring weighs about 23.2 grams and is a very comfortable ring to wear. Size 12.

Brand new in perfect condition. It is stamped sterling and has Harry Begay's hallmark: HHB with an arrow underneath the initals. Gift box & Authenticity card included with your purchase.
