This listing is for a vintage handcrafted Navajo cuff bracelet made of sterling silver and natural inlaid gem stones including ;turquoise, mother-of-pearl, gold-lip MOP, mediterranean coral, blue lapis, cowrie shell, and nephrite jade. NOTE - Before reading the description, I want to point out that this cuff is made for a smaller wrist. If you have a wrist that is larger than 6-1/2 this piece will not fit you.... The inner circumference is 5-1/2 with an additional 1 for the opening/gap...... Now on to the good stuff!This is an incredibly beautiful piece of vintage Navajo jewelry!! Natural gem stones are set in a raised cobblestone fashion over the face of this thick and solid silver cuff. Each stone inlay is in excellent condition with no cracks or inclusions.
The color that jumps off this piece is incredible with bold contrasting hues truly making it standout from others. The bracelet has a unique shape with each end being rounded and flared out slightly larger than the front and the sides of the cuff curving inward creating a wave effect... Not only is this piece beautifully designed but, its very comfortable on the wrist as well.
The face is split into two major sections with one half consisting of turquoise and the other with white mother-of-pearl. The stones are precisely shaped and placed on the cuff too follow the same wave pattern. The MOP side is accompanied by several other tightly bunched inlays, closer to each end of the cuff, while the turquoise side is all turquoise. This is a thick and heavy piece at 84 grams.The silver used to create this piece is solid, therefore there is absolutely NO give to the gap opening. Please measure your wrist and check the measurements below before purchasing. This highly sought after design will make a great addition to your existing collection of fine Native American jewelry..... Or it could be the perfect piece to start one. Cherish and enjoy this cuff for now.... And hand it down to a loved one in the future. Inner Circumference End to End - 5-1/2.
Gap - 1 (NOT ADJUSTABLE). Total Inner Circumference Including Gap - 6-1/2... If your wrist is over 6-3/8 I do NOT recommend purchasing, this piece is better suited to fit someone with a 5-3/4too 6-3/8 wrist. Width of Cuff Measures - Just over 1-1/2 at widest point, and 1-1/16 wide at smallest width.
