Well, the original intent was for the Naja to hover over the center core of your being, traditionally on the bottom of a squash blossom. That gap in the bottom of the Naja (please don't call it a horseshoe) allows goodness to enter into your center core. But this is a ring, you say! Tell you what you do—put it on your finger and whenever you think about it, hold your hand over your heart. Anyway, this is a nicely made piece by Navajo silversmith Robert Shakey. It's study and quite attractive. It is size 6; it is hallmarked "ROBERT SHAKEY," and it weighs 15-grams, or .53-ounces. Always complimentary Priority shipping within the U.S.
