GREEK KEY AND TEAR DROP ( Vintage Native American Navajo Indian Ring ): An estate piece, I believe that this Greek Key and large teardrop turquoise ring was purchased in the 1980’s. The Navajo were quick to appropriate designs from many sources and adapt them to their own classical style. This regal ring features a key design outlining one edge of the magnificently black veined large stone. The workmanship is creative and highly skilled. Turquoise symbolizes the sky and water; it is also associated with healing and protection. The ring band is ¼” wide with a 4 part split shank and is signed “Jackson” and “Sterling”. This Jackson ring is a ring size 9 ¼, but it fits a smaller finger because the ring band is wide. (The ring band can be sized.) I wore it on my largest finger, rather than change the size. Classic in its simplicity, striking in its size, this is a ring that you will want to treasure for a lifetime.

Condition: Excellent.
Size: 2” long, 1” wide. Ring size 9 ¼.
