There is nothing at all average about this beautiful ring! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Calvin Peterson, out of genuine sterling silver and 14 Karat Gold. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver or 14KG. One layer forms the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this ring, the second layer forms magnificent 14 Karat Gold Kokopelli and Water Wave designs for an excellent finish. The Kokopelli is a common fertility symbol throughout the Southwest. In Native American beliefs, the Kokopelli visits various communities, seducing and impregnating the young women drawn to the tones of his flute playing. The water waves design represents continuous life. The ring is stamped sterling and 14k, along with being hallmarked.
Gold is an aggressive masculine vibration; it lifts you up from depressed and futile emotions; it purifies the body.
