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 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!

    Recent earring purchase of three different styles
    Posted by Karen A. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    These earrings are beautiful. Silver Tribe is an excellent web site, user friendly and the items look exactly as what is shown on the computer screen. I have looked at other web sites, but none can compare to Silver Tribe. Prices are very good too.

    GREAT Products, BAD shipping!
    Posted by Richard D. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I have NO issue whatsoever with the products I have received from SilverTribe. They have ALWAYS been the finest quality and best craftsmanship and workmanship. My problem is with the USPS, since my packages shipped on 12/02/2020 have YET to arrive. As stated, the issues I have experienced are NOT issues with SilverTribe. The orders were processed in a VERY timely manner and shipped VERY timely. These were purchased as Christmas gifts for my wife and, at this point, I hope they arrive in time!

    Posted by Rhonda H. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I ordered several pair of earrings for gifts, and they are ALL beautiful, and nice quality. The pot i ordered is really lovely too. The order came quickly! I had ordered gift boxes as well and those were left off the order, when I contacted the company, they were gracious and have me a refund immediately. Wonderful merchandise - Great company to work with. Thanks Silver Tribe!
