Description

Prodigiously gifted, this perennial favorite has a huge international following for his finely fabricated, traditional/transitional designs.

This pleasingly retro ring features a magnificent stone; a lovely robin’s egg blue, natural, Number 8 turquoise.

One of the elite, most-coveted, of all southwestern stones, Number 8 is currently closed to turquoise mining.

This stone exhibits the desirable features of this increasingly rare stone: a glorious blue color, which is lighter, here, than some; an all-over web pattern, which is delicately visible in darker blue, and a golden brown matrix color.

Plumply pillowed, the organic form of the beautiful stone is supported by a perfectly plain, silver bezel, and a twisted silver, rope border.

Placed asymmetrically at top and bottom of the turquoise, are a row of tiny silver domes.

The shank is a classic, four-bar construction, soldered together in back.

This is a timeless, traditional design, executed with admirable finesse, and featuring a sensational turquoise stone.

The stone is the star, just like in historic Navajo jewelry, but the workmanship here is equal in quality and beauty.
