Calvin Martinez is our favorite ringmaker because of his unique designs and the exacting workmanship that he brings to the fine details of his rings. No two of his rings are exactly alike and the stones he uses in his pieces are of fine quality and particularly well cut.
Calvin set a large oval of natural, untreated Turquoise Mountain turquoise from Arizona in this handmade notched bezel and wrapped it with twisted square wire. Calvin decorated the ring face border with finely detailed hollowpoint dot stamps. The shank is made of hammered ingot; beautifully shaped and stamped. This is a very fine, truly handmade ring which embodies the best elements of Navajo Traditional Revival jewelry.
Hallmarked C.MTZ inside an arrowhead and stamped Sterling and Navajo behind the stone.
