This listing is for a vintage handcrafted Navajo ring, made of sterling silver, turquoise, and coral. This Navajo ring is a great example of raised cornrow inlay work by Cathy Webster. The ring is made with a wide shank of heavy gauge silver that comes to a point on one side. The front of the band is filled with long thin stone inlays that sit raised over the shank. The stones follow the shape of the band and also come to point at the center.
Of the 11 inlays used, 10 are turquoise with a bright blue green color hue with subtle greenish cloud-like matrixes, while the 1 remaining inlay is a red coral that neighbors the longest center inlay. All 11 stones are in perfect condition with no cracks. The inner band is stamped with the Artists signature C.
