Substantial vintage handcrafted sterling silver ring with applied silver fans on the sides along with silver leaves, swirls, & curly-q's. From a New Mexico estate. The face of the ring measures 1-1/8 inch by 7/8 inch. Weighs 14.8 grams. Size 11-1/2. Excellent vintage condition.
The initials ED are etched into the back of the ring with an engraver, but I don't believe them to be the artist's hallmark. But rather the initials of a previous owner or a traders code. The ring is not hallmarked but tests positive for coin silver (.900/90%) or sterling silver (.925/92.5%). From a local New Mexico antique store. Although I can not attribute this ring to any specific Native American artist, I feel confident that it was Native American made.
