Navajo silversmith Albert Jake was born in 1959. He has been smithing silver since the mid-1980's. Albert is renowned for the precise detail and execution of his work and for the fine natural stones which he always employs in his pieces.
Albert set this thick, perfect oval of natural, untreated Royston turquoise in a smooth bezel wrapped with twist wire. This two-tone blue and green turquoise is tight-grained and polished to glassy smoothness. The shank is decorated by starred buttons and raindrops. This works for men and women.
