An unknown mid-century Navajo artisan fashioned this beautiful silver bracelet containing sixteen turquoise cabochons, ranging in hue from dark green to light blue.  The artist mounted the stones with small silver drops interspersed between them. The high grade turquoise cabochons are all set securely on three bands, the outer two which are stamped and a center band of twisted wire.

The bracelet is stamped “sterling” on the back, but there is no hallmark.


Condition: The Navajo Silver Bracelet with Sixteen Oval and Domed Turquoise Cabs is in very good condition. The stones are in excellent condition. The piece has recently been polished, giving it an almost like new look.

Provenance: From a Colorado Southwest Indian Jewelry collector

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR WRIST FOR BRACELET SIZE

Measure your wrist with a flexible tape measurement or a strip of paper just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear the bracelet.

Option: If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen or pencil then use a ruler to measure the length. That would be your wrist size.

Tip: Do you want a snug or loose fit? Well, that really will vary between everyone. If you are buying a delicate bracelet, we suggest doing a snug fit. Most other bracelets should have a comfort fit except when buying large or thick cuffs or bangles. It's best to buy large bracelets with a loose fit so you don't feel like you are suffocating your wrist, or it will be worn over clothing.

 

 

Fitting Style Add inch(es) to wrist size
Snug Fit Add 1/4" to 1/2"
Comfort Fit Add 3/4" to 1"
Loose Fit Add 1 1/4"
