This could be? Ray Bennett.
He usually signs Ray Bennett or R. Bennett/Sterling, this is marked STERLING BENNETT.
But: Almost all sterling bolo ties are signed simply “BENNETT/PAT.Pending” and many are attributed to Ray Bennett - right or wrong I wouldn’t know.
The motif is more “Western” and I didn’t see any garnet jewelry out there by Bennett.
I was wondering if R. Bennett is still alive and if he is part of a Navajo jewelry dynasty, including Lee and Cecilia Mae Bennett?
This would be so great if I could find more information on this ring - Appreciate any information you can offer!
