Most lapidary artists would have cut this stone in half and made two flat topped cabochons of it. Not Bruce Eckhardt, he cuts in the old Persian style, which means “high crowns and full bellies.” With such a stunning quality of natural coral, this manner of cutting allows for a magnificent stone. When Navajo silversmith Albert Jake got his hands on this awesome stone, he did not want to detract from its singular beauty, so he set it simply in an elegant sterling silver finger ring. Impressive!


About the artist:

Since 1959, Albert Jake has made his home in the beautiful country located about forty miles south of Gallup, New Mexico.  He was born at Zuni Pueblo and has resided in the village of Ramah for many years.  Albert’s parent taught him the many steps to fine Navajo silverwork which includes both cluster jewelry as well as beautiful stones in classic Navajo settings.

Silversmith Work

When and how the Navajo acquired the art of working metals is unknown but there are reasons for supposing that it was introduced among them, or at least more developed and improved upon by them, since the time they have occupied their present country?
