Beautiful vintage Zuni turquoise inlay teardrop butterflies watchband. The silversmith has made five (5) silver teardrops arranging them to resemble a butterfly and flush inlaid each teardrop with what appears to be high grade Kingman turquoise. The artist continues decorating by running twisted wire around the outer rim of the “butterfly wings” along with connecting two (2) stout wire scrolls as antennae. All mounted to a silver base plate that’s been cut to hold the butterfly settings. The artist finishes each butterfly watch tip by attaching a barrel tube watch pin shank at top and a wire hoop at bottom to connect the stretchbands. I’ve seen this design quite often, but don’t remember seeing quality turquoise inlaid into the butterfly?

Each butterfly watch tip measures 1” by 13/16” across widest area. The tubular watch pin holders measure a tight 12mm (1/2”) and could be slightly filed down on both ends for a smaller watch shank. The come attached to a new 3” long adjustable stainless steel stretchband and we can exchange of shorter or longer stretchband lengths if requested. Click Here to see the different lengths. The total length of the watchband as is measures 5” long without a watch measurement. Total weight of the watchband is 19.5 grams and it’s hallmarked T above and conjoined with an H - STERLING by the artist. Beautiful Zuni teardrop inlay butterfly watchband with quality turquoise! $149.95
