I try to go above and beyond when describing pieces of this nature and value. Please pay close attention to measurements, especially with cuff bracelets... The last thing both of us need is to have to deal with a return. So kick back, dont be in a hurry, and take 5 minutes to process all the information below. This bracelet is gorgeous and in amazing condition!!!
The Navajo made piece is made with 2 wide thick shanks that flare out wider toward each end. The top shank raises up in the center with a scalloped cutout creating a shadowbox. The shadowbox is long and follows the same design as the shank, being wider at each end.
The remainder of the top shank carries deep hand stampings, from end to end, of classic Navajo designs. The inside of the shadowbox is adorned with 7 easter egg pastel turquoise stones.
The stones sit securely in straight edge bezels over the dark oxidized bottom shank. The center stone has a sky blue hue and sits nearly flush with its bezel while the remaining 6 have a pastel green color and protrude from their bezels. They all have just a hint of matrix and the center stone looks to have a small speck of silver or pyrite within it.... Each stone is in excellent condition and finished with a high polished shine. The edges and ends of the cuff have been smoothed making application to the wrist comfortable.
The silver used to creat this piece is thick and sturdy, leaving no room for adjustment. That being said, its a very comfortable cuff when worn on the correct sized wrist. This is a wonderful example of authentic mid-century Native American jewelry. It has been well taken care of over the years leaving it in its great vintage condition. This piece is waiting for a new home that will continue to look after it.
