What a terrific ring this is! This is from Calvin Begay, a well-known inlay designer in Gallup, NM. He creates some fascinating inlaid designs that his team of Native American jewelry artists craft by hand. You are looking at a reversible ring that has two different inlaid sections that you can display. One side has jet and blue cultured opal with small silver bars in between the stones. The other side has green turquoise, jet, and a single slice of cultured opal. All these stones are cut and fit together by hand, a time-consuming process. The sterling silver band meets the inlaid portion with a hinge that allows the section to be freely rotated. This is like having two rings in one!
The design of this Native American ring shows how much thought Calvin Begay puts into his work. It is not often that you see a reversible ring like this. This undoubtedly required some tricky engineering to manufacture a sterling silver ring with a hinged mechanism. Although care should be taken with any handcrafted jewelry, especially rings, you do not need to worry about the mechanism wearing out. I asked Calvin about this and was told that this is not something to worry about. Furthermore, all his jewelry comes with a lifetime guarantee.
You are going to love impressing your friends and family with this reversible ring. Combine the extraordinary reversible design with flawless inlay work and you have a unique piece of jewelry that you will never grow tired of.
