Evelyn and Mike Platero are a husband and wife team of silversmiths. Evelyn is Zuni and Mike is Navajo. They are particularly known for their rings, earrings and pendants. You can see my full range of their work by using the "Search" page and entering the name "Platero" in the box (this can help in finding matching earrings and pendants).
This large cluster ring is a beauty--with deep blue turquoise and hints of green. This is a wholly handmade ring with a wide, solid shank fanning out to a width of 1 1/4" at the points where it attaches to the ring back. The shank bears heavy stamping and mimics a style of yesteryear. Though the stones are of varying size in this ring, the ring has perfect symmetry. Hallmarked "Mike Platero" and stamped "Sterling" inside.
Stones: center stone 3/4" x 1/4" ; other 10 stones range from 5/16" x 1/4" to 3/8" x 1/4"
Ring face: 1 3/4" x 1 5/16" Size 11
