Rare beautiful Hopi turquoise nugget decorative stamped cufflinks. I would have tagged these Navajo until I started to research the hallmark. There's only two (2) artists' that use the Fox Hallmark and both are Hopi silversmiths. The artist has used beautiful blue polished turquoise nuggets with black matrix and sections of clear quartz setting them into saw tooth bezels and mounting them to a scorched silver base. Then the artist has wrapped the outer rim with repeat stamped half round wire creating a similarity to a shadowbox effect. The artist finishes by attaching stationary cufflink clasps. 

Each cufflink measures 7/8" by 5/8" across and weigh approximately 6.7 grams (13.4 grams for the set). They have been hallmarked with a foxes bust and as stated above there are two Hopi silversmiths that use this type hallmark. One is Art Batala and the other is Lyman Nasawytewa. I lean more towards Art Batala, but the AB initials are missing or didn't take in the stamp? Very nice and rare Hopi turquoise cufflinks!  $119.95
