Vintage Sterling Turquoise & Coral Ring
Hefty, hand crafted and beautiful! The gent's ring is vintage from the 1980's and comes to us from an estate out of Miami. Sterling silver chief's feather design to the sides with beads that accent the natural red coral and Carico Lake turquoise stones. In very good condition with NO cracks or breaks to stones or metal work, only wear to natural stone crevasses (please view photos.) Coral has some mild dulling from age, but still quite vibrant. The turquoise is light blue with amazing charcoal and white veining; in the right light you can see shades of green sneak out. There is a etch to the back of the ring face, but I am not sure if it is a maker's mark. It is light and not discernible. There is a "Sterling" stamp to the outside band edge. Would make a great BoHo groom's band or that perfect gift for that gent that appreciates Southwest Native American artistry.
