Beautiful detailed Navajo turquoise and coral floral decorated watchband. The silversmith uses both turquoise nuggets and pieces of branch coral setting them in saw tooth bezels and mounting them in the upper corner of the watch tips. One side has a blue polished turquoise nugget with silvery iron ore pyrite and black matrix with the other nugget also having clear quartz mixed in it. The artist has mounted the branch coral under the turquoise on both tips. The silversmith continues decorating each watch tip by adding a silver flower, two (2) silver leaves, two (2) coiled scrolls, two (2) normal scrolls, and nine (9) silver drops all on a blackened scorched silver base. He also adds twisted wire and deep stamped smooth wire on both sides along with smooth wire across the top and bottom of each watch tip. Finishing with a watch pin holder and cross bar to attach the stretchband.

Each watch tip measures 1 5/8" by 1 1/8" across narrowing to 7/8" across the bottom. It comes with a 3 3/8" long adjustable stretchband and we can exchange for a shorter 2 3/4", 3", 3 1/8", or 3 1/4" and/or a longer 3 1/2" or 4" stretchband if requested. The watch pin holders measure 17mm (11/16") and could be filed down evenly on each end for a shorter watch pin. The complete watchband weighs 42.5 grams (1.50 ounces or 1.37 troy ounces) and is hallmarked H.Begaye inside a Feather - STERLING by Navajo silversmith Harvey Begaye. Very nice and detailed decoration watchband!  $169.95
