A Bit About The Piece

Made in the popular Zuni style referred to as a "hummingbird," this vintage sterling silver ring is inlay-set with natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise pieces.  Over the course of years of age, the porous turquoise absorbed the wearer's skin oils, turning the stones a pleasingly patinaed greenish color.
