Paula says - "This tiny ring would make a great toe ring, pinky ring, child's ring or baby ring! Excellent vintage condition. It was made in the 1970s but was never used - it is brand new vintage!"

Questions or more details.

Cabochon. A cabochon is a gemstone that has been smoothly shaped and polished as opposed to being cut with flat facets. This usually results in a stone with a rounded convex top and flat bottom. Opaque gems, such as turquoise are often cut as cabochons, while transparent stones such as diamonds are facetted.

We leave the natural patina on our pawn jewelry because many of our customers like the "vintage" appearance. If you'd like to clean up your silver jewelry, new or old, check out our silver cleaning and polishing cloth.

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.
