American Indian Sterling Turquoise & Coral Cluster Ring
A wonderful turquoise and coral cluster ring from the 1940's! This handmade American Indian piece is particularly large in size and is crafted in sterling silver. The decorative design features a single turquoise stone in the center surrounded by 9 coral cabochons, forming a large cluster. All of the bezel set stones vary slightly in shape and size, and each is polished smooth, displaying stunning natural colors. Twisted wirework and sterling bead work accents complete the impressive centerpiece. The silver band is comprised of a split shank at each shoulder, which tapers in towards the back. A wonderful example of traditional American Indian artisan jewelry, this ring makes a beautiful statement!

Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling setting, and all of the coral and turquoise stones are intact.
