What can you tell me about this ring I found in my husband’s grandmother’s old jewelry?

Hi Paula
I was going through my husbands grandmothers old jewelry and found a silver and turquoise ring. There appears to be a marking of some sort on the back. It looks like it says “SH ZUNI”. Is there any info you can tell me about his piece or can you point me in the direction to find out more about it. I can send pictures if you would like. Thank you for your time!
