PLEASE NOTE, THE LAST 3 PHOTOS ARE NOT OF THIS RING, BUT ARE FROM THE SAME COLLECTION (SHOWN FOR PROVENANCE). THE PHOTO JUST BEFORE THAT (THE 8th PHOTO) SHOWS THIS RING (CIRCLED) ALONG WITH SOME OTHER UNSIGNED RINGS BY THE CLARKS (ON THE LEFT SIDE) AND IN THIS PHOTO, THE 4 RINGS ON THE RIGHT SIDE ARE INDEED SIGNED. THESE EXTRA PHOTOS ARE PROVIDED AS PROVENANCE. Although currently famous for their micro-inlay, they started out doing traditional work like this in the early 1970s. Almost all of the pieces in the collection were hallmarked with their stamp, however there were a few pieces without hallmarks. This is one of them. The last 3 photos show some of the rings from that collection and a couple of the hallmarks. Although there are various styles, it is obviously the same work from one ring to the next in the collection. When he retired and moved back to AZ recently, he brought the collection out of storage and we then acquired it. The items were NOS from over 40 years ago and all were early works of Carl and Irene!

Adjustable Native American Turquoise Row + Repousse Work Sterling Silver Hatband
Vintage Southwestern Native American Indian turquoise row Sterling silver hatband, stamped STERLING, and signed IH by the Navajo artist. This hatband showcases 6 rows of 7 turquoise stones, plus the additonal stones embellishing the two little buckles on and two keepers. The stones are set in serrated bezels and distributed across the cuff with repousse crescent moons in between each turquoise row. The hatband is framed by twisted wire on top and bottom from end to end, and the edge of the buckles and keepers are also adorned by twisted wire. This hatband was crafted with heavy-gauge silver, and it’s heavier than most hatbands we have seen, weighing roughly 72 grams, just over 2.5 oz. It measures about 3/4″ in width at the buckles, and the band itself is 3/8″ wide. This piece is adjustable and can accommodate various sizes of hats by simply sliding the band in or out of each buckle and keeper. Thank you for supporting authentic Native American art.
