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!

    Silver Cuff Bracelet
    Posted by Douglas S. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    My wife saw this beautiful Robert Yazzie Cuff Bracelet in a store window when we are on a trip a year ago, but unfortunately the store was closed that day. I found the same design online and ordered it through Native American Jewelry. It arrived for her birthday and she has been thrilled with the beauty and bold design of this bracelet.

    found exactly what I was looking for
    Posted by Kerstin B. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I was looking for a multicolor ring fitting to the native american jewelry I already have and I found exactly what I was looking for for a very good price. Purchase on the side was easy and fast. International shipping took about 1,5 weeks - that's ok. The ring is very beautiful and in very good quality. Thank you so much.
