About the ring

In earlier years, "old pawn" jewelry was often considered a financial reserve for many Native American families. These handmade pieces were often pawned to meet family obligations, and reclaimed at a later date. Those that weren't able to be redeemed were sold by the shops on the reservations. This green turquoise and sterling silver ring with stampwork around the bezel is representative of years past.
