Beautiful stout vintage Navajo turquoise four directional decorated bracelet. The silversmith has used a round cut and polished turquoise stone with brown matrix setting it somewhat flush into a smooth silver bezel. The stone is wrapped with twisted wire and a row of three (3) silver drops mounted above and below the stone. To the left and right of the stone the silversmith has expanded the distance with slightly angled silver wires and a stack of three (3) silver drops marking each of the four directional paths with silver drops. The artist mounts the setting to a triple wire cuff which consists of a round smooth wire in center flanked on both sides with a triangular wire. All three (3) wires are soldered together beginning on each side and followed down the each end. 

The bracelet measures 13/16" wide narrowing to 5/16" wide at the ends. It has an inner circumference of 5 3/16" with a 1 1/4" opening. The bracelet fits a 6 1/4" to 6 3/8" wrist as is and could be adjusted to fit between a 6 1/8" to 6 3/8" wrist. I normally don't like expanding the opening more than 1 1/4" for an average woman's wrist, but theoretically it could be opened up to a larger wrist. The bracelet weighs 22.8 grams and is stamped STERLING along with an illegible hallmark by the artist. The bracelet has similarities to those considered "Harvey Era" bracelets so it could easily been made in 30's-40's. Definitely pre-70's bracelet! We have not cleaned and will leave that decision to the customer. Very nice and stout vintage bracelet!  $159.95
