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 overlay hand crafted by artist Harrison Tsosie, out of genuine sterling silver and 12 Karat Gold Filled. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver or 12KGF. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this ring the second layer forms a design that depicts the every day life style of the Native Americans, which includes: a Hogan, vehicle, and landscape scenery. Stamped designs accent the sides of the ring for a marvelous finish. The ring is stamped sterling, 12 KGF and hallmarked.
12KGF is as good as gold. The color will never fade, change, or wear off. It is 12K gold on top of brass and other metals, which create a gold tone with a finish all the way through. 12KGF behaves the same way as gold.
