This listing is for a vintage Navajo handcrafted cuff bracelet made of sterling silver and turquoise. This is a well made cuff featuring 4 raised stone inlays on each side of the cuff face. The stones are set in a cobblestone fashion with a thick silver channel running between two of the stones on each side. They have a gorgeous opaque hue of blue green with subtle matrixes and a high shine polished finish.
Each turquoise stone is in mint condition with no cracks or inclusions, obviously a very well looked after piece. The pillowy stones travel deep into the cuff, due to the design of the shank. The base of the cuff is made with a wide single shank, with the front having a dark oxidization. The Artist then applied 5 silver channels running from end to end, creating deep valleys between them.
The three center channels are straight and rigid giving the illusion of depth and dimension against the dark oxidized shank below them. The two outer channels are slightly longer but are pushed inward and made flush with the others. The outer channels help hold the stones in place and help finish the cuff with a clean sleek design. The 9th photo in the listing helps to better understand how the cuff was designed! The silver used to create the cuff is thick and hearty and there is no give at the gap.Its a very sturdy and solid piece. A gorgeous handcrafted bracelet with a simple design, great for todays trending bohemian styles and perfect to stack with other cuffs. A wonderful addition to any existing Native American collection or the perfect piece to start one.... Cherish and enjoy this cuff for now.... And hand it down to loved ones in the future.
