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 silver or gold. One layer forms the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this ring, the second layer forms a fascinating 14 Karat Gold Bear Paw and Water Wave design for a spectacular finish. In Native American beliefs, the bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength. The water waves design represents continuous life. The ring is stamped sterling, 14k, and is hallmarked by the artist.
Gold is an aggressive masculine vibration; it lifts you up from depressed and futile emotions; it purifies the body.
