This listing is for a vintage 1940s Zuni cuff bracelet, made of sterling silver and natural Nevada mined turquoise. This cuff bracelet is much older than most, dating back from the earlier mid century (1940s- 1950s). Its in excellent vintage condition with all of its original stones and a very rich and dark patina. The cuff is made up of a large round bed of silver and two side wings that are forged to a sturdy double shank.
The shanks are very sturdy and made of thick heavy gauge silver. The gap doesnt have much give. The Artist Hand carved each stone before placing them in straight edge bezels.They have a rich pastel blue color with slight matrixes running through out. Each stone looks to be in perfect condition with no cracks. Fat petite point stones cover the bracelet in circular rows with 1 center snake eye stone. The design is symmetrical with each side of the face having matching wing sections with 4 stones each. The Artist also added classic twisted rope and silver droplets to accompany the stones. Truly a magnificent piece of work in amazingly stunning condition. This is a must have for any avid collector!
