Vintage Navajo crafted "Harvey" era ring in sterling silver with deep green turquoise center stone and stamp-work motif circa 1940's / 1950's

Handmade in the middle part of the 20th century this Navajo crafted ring is a wonderful example of the classic work from the Fred Harvey era of the great Southwest. 

Harvey era jewelry was handmade by Native artists employed by the Harvey hotel chain in the Southwest as gifts and souvenirs for guests to take home after their visit. Handmade from sterling silver and Southwestern type gemstones, sometimes the jewelry was crafted on the spot by the artists and presented directly to the buyer. Harvey era jewelry has become among the most collectible Native American jewelry available.

Set to fit a size 7 finger this ring measures approximately 1/2 inch wide across the top. This ring was handcrafted in solid sterling silver and features a single turquoise stone in the center. The stone has changed to a lovely deep green hue. The stone has a expected age-wear with some crazing and crackling. The ring is accented with additional stamp-work designs indicative of the Harvey era. 

This Navajo crafted Harvey era ring circa 1940's / 1940's is a delightful piece.
