This ring by a Native American silversmith is the largest ring I have ever seen. The central stone is a beautifully mottled agate with a forest green ground and flecks of red. The stone measures 1 1/16" x 1 7/16. With the silver rope banding around it, the front of the ring measures 1 7/16" x 1 3/4". It is size 8 3/4 but can easily be sized up or down. This dramatic ring can be worn equally well by a man or woman.
