We've had this ring for years and could never figure out the mark. We kept it because it was part of the biggest jewelry score my mother ever made, a suitcase full of Charles Loloma, Preston Monongye, Eveli Sabati, all the best names in Native American jewelry. There are several pieces from that suitcases that were published in books and are in museums.
The lady who owned it was the heir to the Sparklets water company, and apparently had a taste for NA jewelry. Anyway, she married one of our gold-digging neighbors who got this big piece of luggage full of jewelry after she died, which my mother then purchased. I remember her shaking as we were going through it an seeing Loloma, Monongye, Sabati, etc. Just every desirable, valuable name in NA jewelry.
Anyway, we always kept it because of where it came from, but I know jewelry is hard to identify. I especially like the turquoise "inner beauty" "Eye of Rah" on the underside. Definitely going to stay in the family. Does it look familiar to anyone? KH maybe?
