Hi I stumbled across this and thought wow. Maybe I can get some answers. I would like to sell some of my Native American jewelry and want to make sure I know what I have and what it is worth. I live in an area of the country that is not particularly savvy in this . And I don’t really trust some jewelers .
Ok, are you sending pictures?
I have 2 men’s rings that are size 13+. One with coral and turquoise and the other with two coral pieces.
The coral and turquoise one has a sort of chevron design on the sides and measures an inch north to south and about 3/4 inch east to west. On the back, it has what looks like an “N” scratched in th middle beneath the shank. It is not stamped in but somehow scratched in.
The coral ring measures 1 1/4 inches N to S and 1 inch E to W. It has a leaf design on one side and sort of a fan design on the other. It has what looks like “Robertson” etched into the back with tiny dots.
I will try to attach 2 photos of each. If you want me to take a picture of the other side of the coral ring I will do that. Just ask.
If anyone can help me find out more information about these rings and their value, I will be most appreciative.
Thank you, Linda
The ring shanks are cast, silversmiths will buy them from the local supply store and then decorate the top with stones. The coral and turquoise appears to be Navajo made, the coral with the sides could possibly be Zuni. I would imagine you would see these rings between $60 - $90 retail, thanks for sharing.
Just found this. Are you still looking to sell your pieces? If so, please let me know.
