Bright vintage Navajo 12K gold filled turquoise leaf decorated watchband. The artist has used four (4) very nice cut and polished blue turquoise nuggets with brown and tan matrix along with hits of quartz. She has applied two (2) nuggets to each watch tip setting them into deep saw tooth bezels and mounting at opposite ends of the watch tip. The artist has added a single leaf, large drop, and five (5) long scrolls between the stones. All mounted to a textured golden base. She finishes each watch tip by running decorative stamped smooth wire down both sides, a watch pin tubular holder at top, and a cross rod at bottom to clip the stretchband. All of the face of the watch tips is very golden in color. I want to say it's either 10K gold wash or 12KGF since it's not marked. I'm leaning more to 12KGF whereas it does tarnish like 12K gold filled and the artist is known for using 12KGF.

Each watch tip measures 1 9/16" by 1  1/16" across narrowing to 13/16" across the bottom. The tubular watch pin holders measure 20mm (13/16") and can be filed shorter to fit other watches. It comes with a 3 1/4" goldtone adjustable stretchband. The complete watchband weighs 38.1 grams (1.34 oz or 1.22 ozt) and is hallmarked STERLING - A. VANDERVER by Navajo silver/goldsmith Anita Vanderver. Very nice vintage Navajo turquoise and gold decorated watchband!  $148.95
