This Native American (most likely Navajo) ring is the largest I have seen. It measures 2 3/16" tall and 1 5/8" wide. It is interesting to note that because of its large size, the maker had to solder two pieces of silver together to create the backing. It is set with round and pear shaped natural turquoise stones. The ring is size 7 1/2 but can easily be sized up or down. Made circa 1950; found in Arizona.

The surface on which the stones are set is oxidized with the black giving the appearance of additional depth. The bracelet is stamped with an abstract design of circles and continuous curved lines on the top and bottom. It weighs a very substantial 123 grams. The inner diameter is 2 1/8" across with an opening of 1"...

Silver master Antonio Pineda is best known for his architectural designs. This wonderful Circles bracelet is in keeping with his fine work. The circles are 3/4"tall. The sturdy clasp is invisibly integrated into the design. Only the safety chain indicates where the clasp is. It is in very good condition. The bracelet is made of 970 silver, higher quality than the 925 standard. It is approximately 7 7/8" in length but difficult to measure precisely because of the safety chain.
