Wide Sterling Silver and Gemstone Inlay Band Ring
Here is a very different twist on an inlay band ring. This Native American Jewelry artisan handmade Sterling Silver band ring by Kenneth Bitsie is wide and is the shape of a cigar band. Kenneth kept the silver work on this Gemstone Inlay Band Ring very simple to highlight the intricate gemstone inlay work. To each side of the inlay pattern the ring features simple horizontal stamped and chased water drop ring designs. The stone pattern in the Gemstone Inlay Band Ring is very unique for American Indian Jewelry. This pattern features a center Sleeping Beauty Turquoise gemstone which is flanked on either side by Sterling Silver inlays, then orange Spiny Oyster Shell, then red Mediterranean coral, purple Sugilite, Lapis Lazuli, and finally natural Black Onyx. The inlay pattern is a diagonal stripe pattern that gives the ring a real unique look. The shape of the mosaic stone inlay is an oval and was cut to have a dome which gives the ring more dimension. Bitsie even domed the bezel in this Gemstone Inlay Band Ring to give the piece a really smooth and comfortable feel. Handmade in New Mexico, USA, this multi-color inlay ring features the Navajo Jewelry hallmark "Kenneth Bitsie" and is stamped Sterling.
