A lovely Lone Mountain turquoise cab is set in a sterling silver ring, circa 1960. The silver snake was added to cover the cracked stone which is secure.
Excellent quality silver smithing by an unknown Navajo Indian has three layers of design around the bezel and a very nice split shank band with raindrops. Note the Eagle and arrowhead designs stamped into the band.
The natural turquoise cabochon is 30 mm by 18 mm. Ring size is 10.
