Melvin Francis Chinese Turquoise Concha Ring size 6

Melvin Francis is a Navajo silversmith who lives in the Gallup, New Mexico area. We first offered his work on our website in 2003, at which time he was beginning his smithing career. As of 2012 we've re-established contact with Melvin and he has matured as a silversmith and mastered many different styles and techniques in silversmithing.

This ring's rectangular concha with soft corners is stamped and shows "bumped up" decorative motifs. A round of natural Chinese turquoise is set in the center of the concha. The split shank is decorated by two raindrops on each side. Melvin 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 "FRANCIS" and stamped "Sterling" inside.

Stone: 1/4" diameter

Dimensions of concha: 1 1/2" x 3/4"

Width of shank in back: 5/16"

Size: 6
