This sturdy Native American turquoise and sterling silver ring was hand made by Navajo artist Andy Cadman. The ring is set with a natural green Kingman turquoise stone that is flanked with applied silver fans. The scalloped band is deeply stamped all the way around with an antique satin finish. The genuine turquoise stone is a bright teal color. This ring works well for a woman or as a man's pinky ring.
The ring measures 1 inch wide at the front and narrows to a 1/2-inch wide band at the back. The well crafted ring weighs 15.2 grams and is a very comfortable ring to wear. The wide band keeps the ring from turning on your finger. Size 7-1/2.
Brand new in perfect condition. It is stamped sterling and has Andy Cadman's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity and gift box included.
