Ring, Turquoise, Melvin Francis

Navajo silversmith Melvin Francis continues the classic style of his elders in this contemporary, hand-crafted ring. Using beautifully hued stones from the famous Turquoise Mountain mine, he surrounds them with simple bezels and sterling silver raindrops.  A quadruple wire ring shanks make it comfortable to wear.
