Help to identify hallmark

I have a couple of questions about this ring I just purchased, hope someone can help. First, I was told it was Brisbee turquoise, but all the brisbee I have seen seems to be blue, this is more green in color. Second, the hallmark which sort of looks like a Kachina? I cannot find another like it to be able to identify the artisan. Any and all help would be appreciated!

Hello, the stone could be Bisbee. This ring has some age. Most likely a manufactured piece from one of the many companies serving the tourists while visiting the southwest. Thanks for sharing.

I agree, this Kachina mark is one of the earlier marks used by Maisel’s in Albuquerque. The Maisel Store was built in the late 30’s and did a lot of business in the 40’s and 50’s. They employed Native Americans to operate the equipment to produce a wide range of jewelry. You might research “Fred Harvey Era” jewelry to find out more information about your ring.
