Ring, Conversational, Turquoise, Hoop Dancer, Hallmark, Vintage ‘70s, 1270

Southwestern nostalgia that speaks of road trips through the desert and collecting souvenirs along the way is a huge trend in jewelry.

This Zuni hoop dancer ring leaves no doubt that someone traveled along Route 66 and visited the Pueblos to acquire this charming treasure.  Handcrafted by published Zuni artist, Larry Laate, using hand-cut stones, this novelty ring features a ceremonial hoop dancer.  If you look closely you can see the intricate cut details in the feathers, the bend of the arm, and other decorative accouterments. Set in sterling silver and pointed with silver drops at the feather tips.
