Navajo/Paiute silversmith Benson Shorty works in the classic style of silver work. His jewelry is simple and elegant with extraordinarily clean lines and a highly polished finish. With this old-style cluster ring, Benson has selected nine extremely well-matched cabochons of natural, nugget-cut, Sleeping Beauty turquoise from Globe, Arizona. The stones are as bright and beautiful as Benson’s silversmithing.
