Pacific Coast Native American Ring 14K Gold Sterling Totem Pole Thunderbird 8 1/2


Vintage sterling silver and 14K gold ring with a Pacific NW Coast Native American theme totem pole and thunderbird design. Signed Sterling HT (?)and 14K.
The gold overlay is placed over an oxidized background on the sterling silver and there is a shield shaped design on each end.
Measures about a size 8 1/4 to 8 1/2 on a ring mandrel (British size Q 1/2 to approximately R) )
Band is 3/8 inch in height on face of ring and tapers to about 3/16 inch in the back
Weighs approximately 9.5 g
Has some minor surface wear and a few small rough spots along the edge of the ring, although could be polished by a jeweler. These spots are not noticeable when ring is worn.
When viewed with loupes there is a small break in the gold overlay on the top of the ring where the gold does not connect (possibly intentional in the design) and there is also a small area on the lower edge of the gold which has a small "ding".
These flaws are taken into account in pricing of this ring.
Please see photos and let me know if you have any questions. Overall very good vintage condition
Could be re-sized up or down a few sizes by a competent jeweler. There is a faint line visible where ring has previously been re-sized.

Frequently Asked Questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Please inquire if you wish to have a purchase gift wrapped. All jewelry items are normally shipped in gift boxes unless there is an unusual size item that does not fit a standard size box.

What should I do if my purchase arrives damaged or broken?

Please notify me as soon as possible upon receipt of your item. Do not discard the outer packaging as this may be needed for insurance purposes. I will advise as far as procedure for placing an insurance claim.

Can I put an item on reserve?

We can only reserve items up to 24 hours for new customers and up to 3 days for returning customers. As we wish to make our items available to all on an equal basis, we can not reserve items during the Christmas holiday season. (i.e. November through December.) Thank you for your understanding.

Please contact us if you are interested in layaway. We can offer
layaway on item(s) with a value of $100 or more. We require a 25% non-refundable deposit. There are no discounts on layaway items.

How are taxes and customs fees handled for international buyers?

Etsy recently began adding the text "VAT included (where applicable)" and "GST included (where applicable)."
PastSplendors is not registered to collect tax in other countries, so for the items in our shop, it is NOT "applicable" for us to charge/include tax. Therefore our items DO NOT include tax. All Customs duties, fees, VAT are to be paid by the Customer, and are not included in the purchase price. Please inform yourself of CUSTOMS FEES/VAT PRIOR to purchasing, so neither one of us experiences disappointment.

A true declaration of value will be made and the item(s) cannot be labeled as a "gift." Labels are electronically addressed, and cannot be modified.
