DESCRIPTION:

This is a very exquisite ring that must not be overlooked! 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!

    Very Satisfied Customer
    Posted by John M. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I ordered an Opal Necklace with matching Earrings, also a Turquoise and Malachite Necklace. I was so pleased with my first order with Native American Jewelry, I ordered within the week, an Onyx and Tiger Eye necklace with matching earrings. My wife was extremely pleased with the gifts and has worn them since with many complements about them. Shipping was fast and well packaged. I will definitely be ordering in the future from Native American Jewelry. If you are considering purchasing Southwest American Jewelry, I would highly recommend Native American Jewelry!

    Effie C. WOW
    Posted by Pat C. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I love it! The Effie Calavaza pendant that I purchased is so similar to the belt buckle that my husband gave me when we moved from N.J. to Wyo in the mid 1970's, also by Effie C. It brings back wonderful memories. Love her work, hope to get more.
