Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

It is a beautiful handmade silver ring. Such handmade jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The design of the ring is very nice and was fashionable in the last half of the 1900s. It is hard for me from the photos to tell if the stone is mother of pearl or another lightcoloured stone. However pricewise there will be no difference. The ring appears to be in good condition. I presume that it is made of sterlingsilver which was common to use when talking about Navajo jewellery. The fact that the ring is signed adds to the value however quite a lot of jewellery was made so it is not a rare piece as such. And this is reflected in the price.

The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online jewellery auction, where I believe the ring has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the beautiful sterlingsilver Navajo ring. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
Thank you

What a joke. I happen to know that this is worth more than what you appraised it. I definitely won't be using this site nor recommending it. This was a stupid waste of money

You obviously don't know native American jewelry
