Antiqued Silver and Royston Ring
“A self-taught jeweler, like many others, unlike many others, (Aaron John’s) work is fresh, individual, and beautifully made.”
That is the published judgement of a recognized specialist in Indian art.
With precise detail in the silver work, and a splendid stone, this ring emphatically seconds that opinion.
In traditional Navajo jewelry, the stone was the star; here it certainly is, and certainly deserves the center stage.
A large, graceful oval of natural Royston turquoise contrasts the earthy matrix with flashes of unusually bright green.
Delicate scallops of darkened sterling silver surround this special stone, with individually applied decorations.
Tiny, flawlessly formed, fluted half-beads and hand-stamped scallops stand up against the base silver, all of it antiqued.
This harmonizes with the loamy hue of the matrix in the stone, and allows the vivid green to stand out even more.
Antiqued to match, the traditional three-band shank is peaked, and sufficiently sturdy to support the size of the turquoise.
(The ring can be sized, somewhat, if you need it to be.)
A fabulous stone, set off with an inventive and decorative border, creates a ring to treasure.
The workmanship is as fine as the design, and as high in quality as the beautiful stone.
Make a striking impression, everywhere you wear this wonderful ring.
