Paula says - "I love this design - a sterling silver leaf wrapped over a turquoise cabochon set in a smooth bezel and accented by an oxidized black sterling silver background. This ring was made in the 1970s but was never used - it is brand new vintage!"

The Silver Fox Collection

Horsekeeping LLC Native American PawnThis collection of jewelry was purchased in 1978 by a professor at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque who was very interested in turquoise and who had intended to start a small business selling Native American jewelry. He bought the items from a friend who worked for Frontier Trading Post and Silver Fox. His plans for a turquoise jewelry business never materialized and the collection has been packed away since then, until we recently obtained it. All items in The Silver Fox Collection are vintage but unused.
