Vintage Sterling Silver Old Pawn Turritella Agate (Fossil) Ring, Chunky, size 11, Unique, Unisex
Vintage Jewelry: Vintage Sterling Silver Old Pawn Turritella Agate Ring - Southwestern/Native American - Artisan created, not mass produced. Mid-century and possibly Wyoming. Size 11, 20.04 grams. It's chunky and unique. Unisex design and great for the forefinger too. The stone is bezel set, oval and a little over 1" long and slightly over 3/4" wide. It has two curved leaf-like or shell-like sides to it. The band joins across at the bottom of the side pieces created a more squared ring than rounded. I find it more comfortable on the middle or forefinger - this is not a ring for a dainty hand - great for men and women. The stone is Turritella and it is an agate found in Wyoming. It contains fossils of snails which is the tell-tale sign - you can see the white curved pieces mixed in with the agate. Very appealing rich deep browns and black. This is a unique piece and not the run-of-the mill southwestern or Old Pawn style ring. This came from an estate sale in PA of a person who collected Native American Pieces Condition is good - some typical expected wear and is a little more rustic than mass-produced pieces. See photos.

I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
