This lovely ring is a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Native American jewelry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted, by artist Lee Shorty, out of genuine sterling silver and a man made Blue Opal stone. The stone is delicately placed in a hand cut bezel setting while twisted silver, mini silver beads, and hand crafted scalloped leaf designs compliment the ring for a wonderful look. The ring is stamped .925 (sterling) and hallmarked.
Most people know Opal for its distinctive play of color, it is a semi-transparent solidified mineral composed of silicon and water, and it gets its name from the Latin word "Oplus" meaning precious stone. Opal is the birthstone for October. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens psychic and mystical qualities.
