We are pleased to offer some expertly and beautifully crafted rings by Silversmith/Goldsmith, Roy Talahaftewa.  Roy is internationally known for the creative way his pieces give modern expression to traditional Hopi designs.  Due to Roy's present commitment to his kiva and clan, as well as his training schedule of future Hopi artists,  pieces of his work will be in short supply for the next year (or two?)   Each of these stunning rings are one-of-a-kind and carry Roy's Waterbug hallmark on the inside.

 A Note About Ring Sizing
Most Hopi rings are wider than traditional wedding bands and the similar ring styles many of us are accustomed to wearing.
As a result, for a comfortable fit, it is usually necessary to order a larger ring size than when shopping at the local jewelry store.
How much larger depends upon the width of the Hopi band you are selecting. 
As a general rule, for a Hopi band ring:
1/4" in width, an eighth to a quarter ring size larger is usually sufficient 
3/8" in width, requires one quarter to one half ring size larger
1/2" in width requires a minimum of one half ring size larger
