This magnificent vintage, one owner, men's Navajo Indian ring was purchased in the late 1970's in Santa Fe, New Mexico and was made by well known silversmith, Harry H Begay.
Mr. Begay's hallmark is his three initials over a left facing arrow as shown in the picture below.

Mr. Begay practices his silversmithing in the true old style, melting his silver in a crucible, pouring it out for repeated hammering and annealing of the metal with use of the best turquoise available. This method of smithing is far above the pre-fabbed sterling silver products that are used to make most Indian jewelry.

The turquoise is not cracked or damaged, has wonderful patina, and in handling this ring there is no doubt in one's mind that this is truly an orignal work of art in the true sense of the old style silversmithing.

This beautiful size 9 ¼ ring is extremely heavy, befitting any man who loves fine sterling silver and turquoise handmade jewelry.

You cannot go wrong with this fabulous signed HH Begay Indian ring.
