Vintage size 10.5 thick silver natural turquoise band, heavy Southwest turquoise silver ring, contemporary Native American inspired ring

Sorry, this item has sold.

Here we have a thick brushed silver band featuring three pieces of deep blue natural turquoise with spiderweb matrix, possibly Morenci given the color of blue and patch of iron pyrite in the center cabochon, in smooth bezels surrounded by twist wire. The turquoise cabs sit about 1/4" high from the band, making the ring super substantial on the finger. The ring is unsigned, although at one point resized--you can tell from tiny divots and the re-soldering of silver, so it is possible an artist's signature was obscured in the process. I bought this piece from an antique dealer specializing in Native American; we both believe this it is an American Indian piece, but since it carries no hallmark I cannot make that claim with certainty. It also does not have a sterling stamp, but it does not magnetize.

The ring is about a size 10.5--with these large bands it is hard to see if it's closer to 10.25--but in either case it is a large-sized band, which is great given the girth and weight of the ring overall. It will look stunning on the middle finger of a long, elegant hand. The band measures just under 1" wide at the widest point, and the largest cab is just over 3/8" in diameter. The turquoise is in great vintage condition, no cracks, and well-seated in the bezel. The silver has some light scratching due to age.

A ring that will make the artist in you feel joyous, not to mention the kind of ring you want to be wearing if you ever find yourself needing to give someone a knuckle sandwich!
