This listing is for a vintage handcrafted Navajo cuff bracelet, made with sterling silver and genuine Turquoise stones. This cuff bracelet is older, dating back from the mid-century (1950s - 1970s). Its in excellent vintage condition with all of its original stones.
Truly a museum quality piece, sure to be seen and make a statement. The base of the cuff is made from a triple shank. Slightly rounded on the outside and flattened for comfort on the inside, the triple shank is very sturdy and doesnt have much give. Its a very well made solid piece. The face of the cuff is uniquely shaped like a snowflake!!
It has a nice symmetry however, being handmade it isnt 100% symmetrical. The thick bed of oxidized silver features colorful turquoise stones resting in scalloped bezels. The stones are of different shapes and sizes portraying bold color hues of green and blue. Veiny matrixes and shimmery pyrite run throughout a majority of the stones, while all have of them have a high polished finish.Each stone is in mint condition and secure within their settings. Each stone is bordered by several silver-works consisting of twisted rope, silver droplets, and scalloped silver rods... The attention to detail is definitely not lacking on this Navajo piece... Because the face of the cuff is flat and the triple shank curves around the wrist, the Artist applied raised silver rods too support the East and West points of the face..... A genius design by Bill, adding stability and strength to the vintage piece. This rare and unique Navajo design will make a great addition to your existing Native American collection or it could be the the perfect piece to start one. This isnt just a piece of jewelry, its a tangible asset and authentic piece of Native American history. Cherish and enjoy this cuff for now.... And hand it down to a loved one in the future.....
