Nice vintage Navajo turquoise bracelet. The silversmith has used a triangular cut and polished blue turquoise stone with black matrix. Setting the stone into a smooth silver bezel and wrapping with twisted wire which butts into three (3) silver drops along the longest side of the stone. The artist mounts the stone to a double thick gauge half round wire cuff and runs a separate twisted cuff down the middle. The twisted cuff consist of two (2) previously twisted wires that are again twisted with a strip of sheet silver. Normally see these as independent cuffs or bracelet guards and not incorporated into a part of the bracelet. Both the double half rounds and the twisted cuff are soldered together as one at each end.

The bracelet measures 1" wide narrowing to 3/8" at both ends. It holds an inner circumference of 5 1/4" plus a 1 1/8" opening. The bracelet fits a 6 1/2" to 6 5/8" wrist as is and can be adjusted to fit between a 6 3/8" to 6 3/4" wrist if need be. It weighs 32.7 grams (1.15 oz or 1.05 ozt) and is unsigned sterling silver. NOTE: The line going across the stone is matrix and not a crack. Beautiful vintage Navajo turquoise bracelet!  $159.95
