DESCRIPTION

This lovely ring will definitely attract plenty of attention! 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 dazzling silver snake design. Imprinted patterns and silver beads can be seen accenting for a marvelous finish. In Native American beliefs, 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 is 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!

    Liquid Silver
    Posted by Denise W. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I bought two pieces of liquid silver, a 5 strand necklace with turquoise and an anklet. Both pieces arrived very quickly and were nicely packed. They are both gorgeous! I love them and I love this company!

    Beautiful rings
    Posted by Linda A. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I ordered 2 rings and they were a little tight. Silver tribe offered to take them back and resize them for me at no extra cost. You did a great job and I love my rings. I will order from you again. Thank you so much
