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 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 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 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!

    Such Fine Work
    Posted by Jean P. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I am so very pleased with my recent transaction with Silver Tribe. I purchased a Navajo sterling silver turquoise cuff bracelet fashioned by Henry Attakai. The price was reasonable, the shipping swift. When I un-boxed the item my first reaction was, “Wow! How beautiful! Wow!” Not hyperbole. These were my literal words. His work is outstanding. Stunning. Can I covet something I already own? I have had the pleasure of shopping for Native American art works in the Southwest, visiting traders, museum stores and Native run shops from the Hopi Mesas to the Zuni lands. I’ve seen and purchased beautiful pieces. This gorgeous work of jewelry counts among them. I highly recommend Silver Tribe. They trade in the real thing. I will be looking to buy from them again.

    I love everything I've gotten so far. The color of the stones are true to what you see online. I've been matching up to pieces that I've gotten else ware and they matched perfect.
