Modern Zuni Cornrow Inlay Ring with Italian Coral
You will be stunned by the Museum Quality real gemstone inlay pattern in this handmade Sterling Silver band ring. Native American Jewelry artisan Martha Willeto did an amazing job on this Modern Zuni Cornrow Inlay Ring. The inlay work is amazing and the silver work was kept simple to accentuate the detailed stone work. Martha hand cut each of the real gemstones in the piece. The silver band ring is heavy in natural “Ox Blood” red Mediterranean Coral. The design is of a corn maiden. The corn is made of 15 hand cut square and rectangle gemstones, 12 of which are the red Italian coral. This top grade red coral is accented by Mother of Pearl, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, and Black Onyx. The face of the Corn Maiden in this Zuni Cornrow Inlay Ring is made of a large piece of water web Kingman Turquoise. The features of the face are made of Lapis Lazuli, Mother of Pearl, Fire Opal and coral. This silver band ring is very contemporary and is domed to a point on one side where the corn maiden’s head is. This side is textured like sandstone on one side and like a rock fire place on the other side. This ring is built as a saddle ring, meaning it is rounded all the way around on the inside of the ring for comfort. This beautiful handmade Sterling Silver Modern Zuni Cornrow Inlay Ring would make a great addition or start to our inlay jewelry collection. American Indian handmade in Durango, Colorado USA, this inlay band ring features the Zuni Jewelry hallmark “MW”.
