Its truly an authentic and classic Zuni made ring. The center features a large Zuni sunface made of coral, black onyx, turquoise, and coral. The stone inlays are set flush and against one another in this portion of the ring. Two small sections of twisted rope hug each side of the face before long rounded corals shoot out from the top and bottom like flower petals.
These coral inlays are also set flush but each one has its own bezel. Natural veins and pores can be seen within a few corals and these are not to be mistaken for damage. Every stone is in perfect condition with no cracks or inclusions.This ring face is truly a magnificent piece of work, worthy of being museum quality. The band is made of two fused shanks that split as it reaches the back of the face. The two bands are soldered to the center of the back and still in perfect round shape. Because the ring is larger and has a bit of a curve to it, the band will only fit down on a ring mandrel to a size 5... However it fits like a size 7 and I have it listed as a size 7.
This classic Zuni piece will make a fantastic addition to any existing Native American collection or it could be the the perfect piece to start one. Not only is this a work of Art, but a tangible asset as well. Cherish and enjoy this ring now.... And hand it down to loved ones in the future.
