Ring, Turquoise & Coral, Hallmark, 656
TALK ABOUT A STATEMENT RING!
It’s hard to take your eyes off this colorful creation by Navajo jewelry artisan Lee Charley. Two large polished stones of uniquely shaped Kingsman turquoise are accompanied by two curved cabochons of red coral, all in simple bezels, accented with sterling silver drops, scrolls, and semi-circle stamp work. It has a funky, fresh feel to it, and it’s certainly impossible to ignore!
