Navajo artist Albert Jake is known for his traditional style of silversmithing and the high-quality stones he incorporates into his art. This gorgeous stone hails from the Mediterranean ocean; it is a pretty pale-pink coral known as Angel Skin. Bruce Eckhardt purchased a branch of the rough material from an Italian dealer at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in Arizona. He patiently cut and polished the high-domed cabochon and passed it on to Albert Jake. The outcome is a thing of unmistakable beauty, a classic Navajo ring containing an exceptional piece of heavenly coral.


About the artist:
