This is a very exquisite ring that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Jerome Yazzie, out of genuine sterling silver and man made Blue Opal inlay. The inlay is gently set, while hand crafted silver work creates striking scalloped leaf designs. Mini silver beads and thin silver lines can be seen accenting for a remarkable look. The ring is stamped 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 birthstone of October. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens psychic and mystical qualities.
