The design is simple with clean lines yet intricate with the most vivid colors Ive seen in quite a while. The shape of the cuff starts off at one end very wide and tapers down in width all the way around to the other end where it creates the shape of an arrow, but with a blunt edge at the very end. A classic Navajo design here Ray Tracey. There looks to be at least two different types of turquoise and it could possibly be three. These turquoise inlays are absolutely stunning!!
The most eye catching of all is a greenish blue color with dark spiderweb veining and patches of gold pyrite that shimmer in the light. The Lapis inlays are a deep blue and contrast beautifully with the turquoise. Each inlay is in MINT condition with no cracks. This cuff bracelet is by far the most colorful we have collected this year. The silver is thicker and heavier than most inlay pieces and the gap is NOT adjustable.....
If you have a wrist over 6-1/4 this cuff will be too small for you. A beautifully handcrafted piece by Esteemed Navajo Artist, Ray Tracey Knifewing, that will make a wonderful addition to any Native American jewelry collection. Cherish and enjoy this piece now....And hand it down to loved ones in the future! Inner circumference end to end - 5-3/16. Gap - 1-3/16 (NOT ADJUSTABLE).

Total number of inlays - 27 total stones, with 13 being the blue Lapis and 14 being Turquoise. There are 3 of the turquoise inlays that contain the gold pyrite and they are spaced out evenly over the face of the cuff.
