This ring makes a statement, but without going over the top.
The artist is known for favoring designs with natural elements.
Here, instead of dragonflies and hummingbirds, impeccably hand -cut and -beveled, stabilized turquoise squares refer to corn kernels.
Corn is the symbol for good health, abundance and happiness, for almost every tribe in the southwest.
In short, it is the major metaphor for blessings, and we are delighted to welcome this handsome ring to our collection.
Hand-cut, impeccably regular pillows of Royston turquoise pave three-quarters of the silver rectangle.
Natural, richly purple spiny oyster shell is stacked in one narrow column, complementing the green hues of the turquoise, like lilacs do, to their leafy foliage.
A slim band of gleaming silver divides the two colors, adding an accent of shiny texture that matches the border of the ring.
The effect is beautiful, and reminiscent of varied-hued Indian corn.
Unseen from the front, the sturdy shank is of sand cast silver, and tapers from one-half inch wide at the sides of the face, to one-fourth inch at the back.
With an artistic palette and meticulous workmanship, this traditionally symbolic design becomes modern and up-to-date.
