There are few designs as immediately recognizable as Petit Point jewelry. Traditionally made by Zuni artists in the Southwest it has also been made by members of the Navajo tribe and others. Made with smaller pieces of Turquoise each tiny bezel, or setting, is handmade and hand soldered. Styles of Petit Point are Needle Point, very narrow and thin pieces of Turquoise, or Snake Eyes, round pieces of Turquoise.
This particular piece looks to have been either made with different types of Turquoise, initially, or repaired at one point in its history. All of the settings are solid today and collectors of Turquoise recognize this as a hallmark of Southwest jewelry.
Based on the construction and patina of this piece we would guess this piece was from the 70's. It is not signed and does not have a metal purity stamp. However it does test well for Sterling, or 925, Silver.
The ring is just under 1.25 inches tall and 3/4 inches wide. It weighs approximately 8 grams. The band size is approximately 7 grams.
This piece contains Turquoise cabochons of unknown origin.
Price includes sales tax, shipping, and handling.
