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?

    What an amazing story and gorgeous ring. I absolutely love this ring.
    I am very new to NA jewelry, so please forgive me for pointing out something basic. Here is the website I go to for NA signatures.

    I actually don't think its a native American piece, it think its some kind of big-shot high-end designer. The suitcase wasn't 100% NA jewelry, there were some other non-NAj designer pieces

    Thank you very much for taking the time to help me though Dr. Fluffy, that was very nice of you :) I will try to help you anytime I can

    I dont know, but couldn't it be the ring is a really nice tourist piece from Egypt?

    All that aside, if it didn't have that really well-done hallmark and the opposite tapered/slanted shank, I'd agree with you

    I didnt see it was turquoise in the back. Thats really unusual. What a great story! I hope you find out more about the ring.
