Navajo Sterling Silver Shell Turquoise Ring

Estate fresh sterling silver ring with Zuni-style inlay shell and turquoise in a star pattern that reminds me of an American country quilt.

Ring is tufa cast and very smooth to touch. It is chunky, but well weighted. 

Size: 10. Face measures 1 1/8" x 3/4". Grey spot in shell is a natural coloration. Weight: 28 grams, that's a full ounce of silver! 

No hallmarks. Acid tested. Very rare and wonderful piece.
