McKee Platero-Blue Diamond Ring-Navajo Style
Native American art collectors from all over the world know the name McKee Platero. I have heard people call him the “best ever” Navajo artist. However, no matter how famous he is in art circles McKee is a very down to earth and very traditional Navajo. This ring is a great expression of who he is. Heavy silver and big turquoise has defined Navajo jewelry from the beginning. McKee uses a large Blue Diamond stone that showcases a gorgeous sky blue with matrix that appears to be heavy black storm clouds. A scalloped bezel and heavy twist wire surround stone. It all finishes on a heavy silver band that is decorated with three silver drops. The ring is around 20 years old and has his MP hallmark along with his 3 dots.
