I have always loved Native American Art, and Jewelry. And a Fine collection of Native American Jewelry. So I was incredibly excited when a friend asked me to help sell his father's collection.
His father was an antique dealer who specialized in the Depression era. When he passed away he left his son (my friend) several buildings full of half forgotten treasures. This ring came from a collection of boxes that gave every indication they had not been touched by his father since the 80's. Many pieces in this collection would qualify to be called Old Pawn.This ring is a great piece. It was made by the Navajo master silversmith Julian Arviso. ARVISO a hallmark he used early in his career. Later on Julian would become famous for his detailed micro inlay, and for his use of gold. This ring would have dated from the mid to late 70's when he was in his 20s.
The face of the ring has 3 beautiful natural turquoise stones, 5 silver beads and a intricately detailed feather. This ring is marked as Sterling Silver, and careful testing has confirmed this.
It is a heavy ring at 22.4 grams (a little over 3/4 of an ounce). Stones are examined under magnification, and using the same filters, tools and light sources a gemologist would use, metals are tested and confirmed. However, if you determine that this ring does not meet the description I have given you, contact me, let me know what is wrong, and I will accept a return.
