Beautiful vintage Navajo turquoise boulder agate symbol decorated cuff bracelet. The silversmith has created a solid thick silver cuff applying symbolized stampwork down the center of both sides of the cuff displaying a horse (journey), morning star (guidance), Thunderbird (bearer of happiness), crossed arrows (friendship), and a cactus flower (courtship). The artist continues to decorate with sunrise, snake jaws, and sun symbols running along both outer edges and across the bottom of the cuff. It displays a beautiful rectangular cut and polished boulder turquoise stone set into a smooth bezel decorated on both sides with bead wire and sun stamped buttons. The bracelet stampwork is typical to the tourist bracelets made during the 30's through the 50's known as the "Harvey Era" along with the style of text used to hallmark "HAND MADE - STERLING". I believe this bracelet is from that era and the stone is a replacement, but may be wrong? Basically, the symbolized stamps aren't used anymore and I can't see buying or making them to create a handful of bracelets? Either way, it's a very well made bracelet with a beautiful stone!

The bracelet measures 3/4" wide at the stone and expands out to 1  1/16" wide down the sides. The stone measures 3/4" by 5/8" across. It has a 5 1/8" inner circumference plus a 1 3/8" opening. It fits a 6 3/8" to 6 1/2" wrist as is and can be carefully adjusted to fit between a 6 1/8" to 6 5/8" wrist. The bracelet weighs 37.8 grams (1.33 oz or 1.22 ozt) and is stamped HAND MADE - STERLING by the Navajo silversmith.  Beautiful stampwork and even more beautiful stone!  $303.95
