Can you say c-l-a-s-s-i-c? This ring was acquired from a very old trading post in New Mexico that is still in business. It certainly wasn't made in the 1960's or prior—so we're certainly not going to misrepresent it as "vintage." Simply being 'used' or 'older' does not warrant labeling Native American jewelry as vintage. Shame on those dealers who do. 'Not perfectly sure of the origin of the turquoise, and the hallmark is somewhat obscured, but this nice ring is obviously made well with quality materials. It is Sterling, of course, or you wouldn't see it here. We don't buy nor sell nickel silver—which actually contains no silver at all. This ring will not go unnoticed. It is 1 and 5/8th's-inches long, and an inch across at the widest point. It weighs 13.5-grams, or .465-ounces. And, it is definitely a bargain!
