2 nice unsigned rings. I believe Navajo. Over the years body oil will change turquoise colors, which you can see in this amazing 1-3/8" ring. Each stone is set in a sawtooth bezel and then in individual blackened bezels. The one on my pinky still has turquoise in fairly the same color, and beautiful twisted wire round motifs.
I wear them together. I believe these are 1940's rings because they aren't marked. Laws changed after WWII about marking Native American jewelry that have to do with silver-smithing guilds. In the 1970's hundreds of stamps were used in addition to sterling or 925.
Another note about marks. Many rings are resized and often marks are lost. Thank you davyd286 for telling me this style is called "snake eye".
