This lovely ring is a size 8 3/4 and was created by Noted Navajo Artist Bennie Ration. It has a
bright, deep deep purple spiny oyster shell. The purple probably looks really dark on your computer.
Surrounding the stone is a carved silver border,
stamp work and twisted silver wire.
It has a sturdy split
shank with stamp work on either side.
It's marked sterling and signed Bennie Ration with his eagle claw hallmark.
It's 7/8" tall and wide.
weight: 9.7 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
Spiny Oyster Shell, Spondylus Brodnip Princess, is found in the Sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico.
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
