Overlaid Four Direction Ring
Arland Ben is a name synonymous with excellence. Known for his beautifully overlaid pieces, his mixture of gold and silver, and his precision and attention to detail, he is widely collected, and deservedly so.
This stunning ring is an example of his more restrained design. Atop a simple, triangular shank is a beautiful square cross with arrows pointing in all four directions carefully overlaid within its borders.
The square cross sometimes referred to as a star, is the symbol of the four directions. The Navajo define their homeland as the area between four sacred mountains in each direction, and within those four directions, sacred things happen. This idea is amplified with the placement of the arrows, also a symbol of direction and protection.
This Four Directions Ring may appear simple, but its meaning shines brightly through the exacting detail and craftsmanship.
Comfortable to wear, this ring will be a favorite for sure! (P.S. We have a gorgeous pair of matching earrings available here!)
