Onyx and Mother of Pearl Buffalo
This lovely little onyx buffalo features a wonderful high shine with three lovely inlaid mother of pearl bursts across the torso. Set into a thin silver wire setting which includes a horn and tail! - such lovely detail - this ring features a three-wire band design which joins at the bottom of the band. Really great southwestern vibe. Super comfortable. Very much feels like a little friend on your finger. A powerful adornment for anyone looking to connect to their elevated, open-hearted and sensitive masculine energies.
Buffalo measures about .75" wide by .5" high.
Onyx is a protective stone that helps us find strength and acceptance through grief and time of difficulty. It is a powerful banishing stone that can also help you hide when you need to not be seen. The inclusion of the three mother of pearl bursts brings out the aspects of the onyx that help with stability through self control and elevated decision making.
Probably from the 1990s
A note on the maker: This ring was purchased with another ring which was stamped BY. Both rings are onyx with three mother of pearl inlaid bursts. While this ring is unsigned, it is marked sterling with the same stamp found on the BY stamped ring. Along with these other indicators, I believe this ring was made by the same maker as the one that is stamped. While I can't be sure, research points to the Hopi silversmith and jeweler, Belvin Yuyaheova, as the maker.
