This mid-twentieth century Navajo cluster silver bracelet features an array of blue-green turquoise set in handmade sawtooth bezels in the shape of two flowers. Interspersed between the stones, in a manner that accentuates the unique color of the stones, are multiple silver drops. Each flower contains nine turquoise cabs and there are an additional two cabs placed between the flowers.

This bracelet was made for a relatively small wrist which would make it even more spectacular when worn by a petite person. It is a bracelet that makes a statement. Each turquoise cab was cut to a different shape—some round, some oval, some triangular and other geometries.  Some are domed and some are flat. All are buffed to a beautiful luster. This truly is a beautiful work of art.

 

Condition: The Navajo Silver Cluster Bracelet with Blue-green Turquoise is in very good condition. The stones are all intact.

Provenance: The bracelet comes from a gentleman Southwest Indian Jewelry collector in Colorado
