This is one of my favorite pieces in my collection, its a 1940's Navajo ring with a large untreated, undied turquoise cabochon. It was one of the very first pieces that I collected, and I plan on keeping it forever. Its just such a nice example of early Navajo jewelry, I could never part with it. Does anyone else here like Native American jewelry?

    I love Native American jewelry and your ring is Awesome! Good call on hanging on to your ring I think the older pieces have stones you can rarely find today.

    Thank you Vintage! I think you're right about the better stones in older jewelry. We has a customer who was a Navajo turquoise broker some years back, and he told us that the high-end silversmiths take stones from 1930's-40's pieces to use in their jewelry because they used up most of the harder stones back then

    I love Native American jewelry. This ring is very lovely. I only have a few old pieces and I agree - can't let those go.
