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 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 delightful 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 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!

    Beautiful ring!
    Posted by Lisa M. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I purchased a beautiful ring from Silver tribe.com. The picture of the ring was very pretty, so I placed my order. When I received my ring in the mail, ( the shipping was very quick) I was more than happy with the quality and craftsmanship of my ring. I love it and I will be making more purchases from Silvertribe.com. I would also say that I highly recommend them to anyone who wants quality jewelry at a reasonable price. ***** 5 Stars.

    Ring for wife
    Posted by Dolf S. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    We traveled all over the southwest we are very interested in native american history and heritage not sure where we got it but she found a similar ring from a jeweler in Taos NM. The ring we bought in Taos was lost while swimming on vacation, and always talked about how much she missed it. Ive been searching along time to find a replacement from area jewelry stores when i had an epiphany the internet lol ( im 60 ) so online isnt usually my 1st thought. On this night tho the stars aligned and I found the ring from your site Im sure she will love. Thanks for the variety and quality of your jewelry its a Christmas gift so i will let you know the results
