Sterling silver Navajo made turquoise ring. The ring features a gorgeous ocean blue turquoise stone with brick red colored matrix, light flecks of pyrite, and some quartz. The setting consists of a twisted rope frame, bent wire design along the sides, small droplets at the top and bottom. Has a thick band and split shank. Signed B.M on the band, but the exact maker has not been identified.
Condition: There is a hairline crack across the stone which is barely noticeable, but present. Moderate natural patina on the silver. Personal preferences vary greatly for the amount of patina on vintage jewelry, therefore I tend to sell jewelry "as found" and leave polishing up to the new owner.
Size: The band size is 8. The setting measures 1 3/8" long x 7/8" wide.
Hallmark: B.M (artist not identified, tests as sterling silver)
