DESCRIPTION

If you are looking for elegance and beauty, you have found it! 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 a real Coral. 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 and silver beads can be seen accenting for a gorgeous 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 sterling, 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.

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!

    I've had a tough time finding exactly what I wanted in a silver w/ turquoise ring. The choices that SilverTribe gave me made it impossible to make a choice of only one. Thanks.

    I have shopped multiple times at Silver Tribe and the merchandise is beautiful. I would also like to applaud the packaging which totally protects the product but is sensibly sized. I really really like this company.
