Streamlined elegance is the best description for this beautiful Zuni ring! Created in the 1960's, this lovely channel inlay ring has an array of natural turquoise greens. Hallmarked, L & J.

Channel silver work, is known for its smoothness and luster. The artisan, using a silver base, first creates raised silver channels, also called bezels, to divide his chosen pattern into tiny compartments. Then taking into account his compartment shapes and bezel depth, he painstakingly shapes a variety of colorful stones or shells into a perfect fit. After fixing them in place, he follows with a final polishing. In channel inlay, silver bezels are an intricate part of the pattern.
