DESCRIPTION:

This is a very exquisite ring that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. 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 stunning silver snake design. Imprinted patterns and silver beads can be seen accenting for a magnificent finish. The snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. Ring is stamped Zuni and hallmarked by the 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.

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!

    I have had trouble ordering on line as I have move twice recently so I called them. And a wonderful women named Tia helped me as I was having questions regarding specific stones on lecklaces and rings, pendents ect. She said she would check the website herself for me and called me back with the perfect product. Everything I have purchased is stellar I would recommend SilverTribe to anyone that asks me. Thanks Tia

    Love it! It is absolutely beautiful and I could not be happier with the purchase. It arrived in record time and added the right touch of elegance to the silver and opal pendant it was bought to go with. I would definitely purchase from Silver Tribe again.
