Big Zuni "Four Directions" vintage ring by Angelena Laahty
This larger sterling sliver ring (size 10) features exquisite Native American tribal-design inlay work by Zuni designer Angelena Laahty. The geometric "Four Directions" design is made of many finely cut pieces of turquoise, coral, mother of pearl, and jet, inlaid into a simple, rounded sterling silver base. The oval gemstone inlay is in perfect, smooth condition - polished and bright. Angelena Laahty is supposed to have said, "the harder a stone is to cut, the more I'm interested in it," and her exquisite craftsmanship is on display here. This ring is stamped on the back "Angelena Laahty." This is a real treasure for someone who appreciates fine craftsmanship and elegant materials. It's a vintage piece, with some signs of wear on the band, while the ring face is in perfect condition.
Measurements: Length of stone along finger = 2.4 cm. Width (across finger) = 1.6 cm. Sone depth (height off finger) = .5 cm. Weight = 15.9 grams
