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 gorgeous oval of natural, untreated Royston turquoise in a smooth bezel wrapped with twist wire. This is very fine-grained stone that takes and holds a glassy polish. The shank is decorated by starred buttons and raindrops. This works for men and women.
Hallmarked A.JAKE and stamped STERLING inside the shank.
