Vintage Zuni Sterling Silver Channel Inlay Zig Zag Ring, Sibert Janita Kallestewa, Signed SKJ, Wavy, Multi-Stone, Size 7 #c485
Here's a beautiful sterling silver multi-stone ring by Zuni husband and wife team, Sibert and Janita Kallestewa!

Talented Zuni silversmiths, Sibert and Janita Kallestewa, have been making wonderful jewelry since the 1950's and 1970's, respectively. They share the maker's mark on this ring and it was made by one of them or both of them as a collaboration. The ring is comprised of fine sterling silver. It has a zig-zag or wavy shape on the face with a fabulous channel inlay of turquoise, mother of pearl, coral and onyx stones. The stones are cut into triangular shapes that follow the unique shape of the ring face. The ring is thick and very substantial and it is finished in a smooth silver. It's such a marvelous multicolor creation!

The ring measures about a size 7 and weighs 4.7 grams. It is marked "SKJ" for Sibert and Janita Kallestewa and hallmarked "Sterling" on the inside of the band behind the ring face. 

This ring is an absolute work of art! The colors of the stones really pop against the superbly inlaid silver setting. The iridescent mother of pearl stones that are repeated in the setting add lots of visual to this unique ring. It's a fine signed Zuni piece to add to a Native American jewelry collection and would make an exceptional gift! The ring is in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear!
