Here is an inlay band ring done right, and made into a museum quality piece of American Indian Jewelry. 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 women's Museum Quality 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 Museum Quality Multicolored Inlay Band Ring is very unique and intricate. This pattern features a central design of vertically inlaid Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, Sugilite, and orange Spiny Oyster Shell, which is flanked on either side by Sterling Silver inlays, then triangular slivers of Gaspeite and Black Onyx, then red Mediterranean coral and Lapis Lazuli. 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 Inlay Band Ring for women 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.
