Red Horse Ring in Sterling Silver and Turquoise
Named after the Lakota chief who fought in the Battle of Little Bighorn, the Red Horse Ring embodies the strength and sprit of the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes who combined to fight against the United States Army. An elongated turquoise cabochon is held within a shadow box bezel and attached to the rounded silver ring band with signature Pushmataaha squaw wrapping.
Turquoise, stone of the sky, is considered by Native Americans to be protective and a bestower of goodness, and has been valued for its beauty and spiritual qualities for thousands of years. Natural American turquoise varies in hue from a brilliant bright blue to pale, serene aqua and can contain matrixed inclusions of earthy stone or pyrite in black and brown speckles. Long prized for its strength in aligning the chakras, turquoise can aid in furthering peace of mind and enhancing a meditative state.
