  • Navajo Sterling cluster ring with Sleeping Beauty turquoise by Justin Wilson, Jr.


    This is a style usually attributed to Zuni Pueblo artisans.  However, plenty of Navajo do excellent cluster work as evidenced above.  This ring has 17 Sleeping Beauty turquoise stones with a little iron-ore matrix in each one.  Weight is .6-ounces, measurements are 1.75 and 1and 1/8th-inches at its longest and widest. Ring size is 8.5.  Hallmarked, "JMW," which is Justin Wilson, Jr., who specializes in exquisite cluster work.  This ring actually came out of a trading post pawn vault  but it appears as if it has never been worn.
