ben nighthorse turquoise, coral, and agate 14k gold ring


The Story

A breathtaking artist piece made by Ben Nighthorse. Crafted in rich 14 karat yellow gold, brightly colored stones are set around the rings center line. Eight pieces of turquoise, two purple agate, and one coral are inlayed between thin pieces of gold. The 11 stones are seen in a raised line circling the center and coming to a peak at front. Exquisitely made, you can tell a true artisan crafted the piece.

A fascinating man, Ben Nighthorse has had many lives while mastering his craft as a jeweler. He's an Olympian, a pilot, a horseman, a Congressman and Senator, all while representing the Northern Cheyenne tribe. His work is known for incorporating his heritage's style and materials while creating jewelry sought by collectors everywhere. 

A striking ring, it feels amazing on the finger and is finished with his bold makers mark on the front interior.
