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.
