This is a very cool Navajo or Pueblo Turquoise Ring.
This is a very unusual and great looking ring with a large Bisbee turquoise cabochon. The design of this ring is overlay with an animal paw motif. There’s stampwork on the shank. The back of the ring is stamped with the artist hallmark, the date it was made and a stamp that reads 18C. There’s also a hole that goes from the back of the ring, through the base of the back of the bezel and through. It’s almost like the artist wanted to attach something to it. Hmm…
