Vintage Sterling Silver Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Ring, size 6.25, Long, 18.70 g
Vintage sterling silver southwestern/Navajo sleeping beauty turquoise ring. This has three chunky irregular shaped nuggets of turquoise believed to be sleeping beauty – which mine has been closed since this ring was made. It is 2″ long, 1/2″ wide. It is a size 6.25, and weighs 18.70 grams. It has a triple split band as it leaves the top of the ring that forms into a singe wide band that is appx. 6.5 mm wide. The stones are bezel set and raised up off the ring about 1/4 or slight higher and the stones extend above the bezel, each one a different height and size. The ring tests as sterling but it not marked. The bezel around the ring has silver content but that part has magnetic properties which means it is made with the wrong alloy – this is sometimes done to provide a less pliable bezel and conserve costs when making it – it is also done in pieces made in Thailand and China but this piece does not appear to be from there. This has a more heavy hand-made look as opposed to a mass produced look and I would date it from 1950’s to 1970’s. It does have vintage patina that will clean to look new however I do not do that on older pieces as many buyers indicated a preference for leaving the piece as is. Very good condition but slightly rustically made, not signed. You can find me on pinterest under pinterest.
