Geneva Ramone is a Navajo silversmith whose work we added to the Chacodog Collection as of June 2013. She specializes in smithing traditional Navajo jewelry, often referred to as Traditional Revival jewelry.
This concha ring shows sculpted edges and a "bumped up" center diamond from which radiating grooves form a Four Corners pattern. Geneva used steel wool to get a brushed finish on the silver before using an oxidizing agent to darken the Sterling and lend it an "old pawn" finish.
Hallmarked "G. Ramone" and stamped "Sterling".
Dimensions of concha: 1 3/16" x 13/16"
Size: 9 1/2
