A modernist Navajo Silver and Ironwood ring by

George Kee for The White Hogan Shop, Scottsdale, Arizona, circa 1950’s



This striking ring was made by the great Navajo jeweler George Kee who learned his craft from his famous cousin, Kenneth Begay, of fabricated sterling silver with dark desert ironwood panels that have been inlaid between silver channel spacers (It is difficult to see in the photos, but there are two triangular pieces of wood set on both sides of the deep silver channels.) The ring is a size 8 and is in excellent original condition. It is stamped "GK" on the interior with the White Hogan Shop hallmark and also "Sterling” and  “Hand Made".  The ring measures 1” in height and ¾” in width. It weighs 21.1 grams or .74 ounces.  The face of the ring was intentionally designed with a slightly offset rectangular face that gives it a very modern and unique appearance.
