Dan Jackson created this fabulous etched and overlay sterling silver ring featuring his signature rug design pattern.
The ring measures about 1/2 inch wide and the design covers the entire ring. The design on the front is different than the design on the back.
The background is oxidized to bring out the contrast between the textured surfaces. Although the ring is made from sterling silver, the texture makes the ring sparkle and almost look gold! The sturdy ring is a size 13-1/2 and weighs 20 grams.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift Box and Authenticity Card included. Hallmarked D.A. Jackson inside a hogan for Navajo silversmith Dan Jackson. Dan makes this ring in a variety of widths, so keep the 1/2 inch width in mind when comparing prices.
