DESCRIPTION:

Excellent craftsmanship is shown throughout this amazing ring! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise stones and real Corals. The ring has a total of FOUR stones, TWO of which are inlayed and create the snakes eyes, while the other TWO stones are set in hand cut bezel in the midst of a gorgeous silver snake design. Imprinted patterns can be seen accenting for a marvelous finish. The snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. The ring is stamped Zuni and hallmarked by artist.

Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of their appeal and beauty.

Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls. 

Well-known artist Effie Calavaza is from the Zuni Tribe, which is located in New Mexico. Effie was taught by her husband Juan Calavaza and began silver work in 1956. She combined her husband's work and her designs to create some of the most beautiful and most distinctive Native American art! Her sand casting and hand done work are among the best and most recognized jewelry in the southwest. Her jewelry is stamped with the family hallmark EFFIE C. ZUNI, which is used by Effie and her three daughters Georgiana Yatsattie, Gloria Jean Garcia, and Susie Calavaza. Effie's daughters assist her in the jewelry making (she shared her spouse's mark, JUAN C. ZUNI, until his death ca. 1970). To this day Effie's work is collected throughout the world and she continues making jewelry because she enjoys it!

    Great Necklace

    The clear descriptions of the dimensions of beads and length of necklaces make shopping easy. Also this information makes for fewer disappointments in ordering.

    Review of Rings purchased
    Posted by Sharon P. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I purchased two rings with the last order I placed with Silver Tribe. I was very happy with the black onyx ring I received. The only complaints I have is that the pictures of each piece for sale enhance the actual size even though the size is listed. I also encourage anyone to be focused on the size of the ring available.

    Turquoise and man made opal
    Posted by Cathleen B. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I love this ring. It fit perfect and is beautiful color with the opal. The opal gives it a little glitz.. The price was reasonable. Even a jeweler thought it was great. I am planning on getting a gift certificate for my grand daughter.
