EXPRESSION OF AN ARTIST ( Native American Albert Francisco Navajo Indian Ring ): This Sterling Silver and Coral Ring is an expression of Navajo artist Albert Francisco’s rare talent. A smooth, almost salmon, colored piece of coral is prong set in the most beautiful silver setting. There are three layers of oval silver work unlike anything commonly seen. The setting has portions that are cut away in a design, exposing the blackened layer beneath. Such a beautiful complex pattern that must have been labor intensive! Even the prong set bezel has beautiful work all the way around. Look closely at the enlarged photos to appreciate the detail in the cut work design. The ring has a three wire split shank tapering to a narrow band. The ring is marked “Sterling” and hallmarked “A.F.” (Albert Francisco). Ring size is 5 3/4. A delicate, intriguing piece of Native American artistry.
 
Condition: Excellent.
Size: 1 1/4” high, 7/8” wide, coral stone 3/4” long.
