Lee Yazzie Turquoise Ring

$ 2,500.00

 This is an earlier ring by the highly respected Navajo silversmith, Lee Yazzie.  The oval ring has 11 high domed turquoise cabochons with serrated bezels and four silver raindrops within a raised silver rim.  The rim has been skillfully incised with even lines which extend from just short of the opposing ends to a little past the middle of the sides, a real artistic touch.  The ring is a size 6.

The National Museum of the American Indian in New York, New York currently has an exhibit Glittering World: Navajo Jewelry of the Yazzie Family that features Lee Yazzie and other family members running until January 10, 2016.
