The construction of this beautiful classic Navajo row bracelet reflects the handiwork of an exceptionally talented Diné silversmith. Five lovely sky-blue turquoise gemstones are set between two precisely stamped bars. Interspersed between the gemstones are delicate silver drops. Each turquoise cab is set snugly in straight edged bezels. It is a beautiful traditional Navajo bracelet. The bracelet is unsigned and dates to the mid-20th Century.

Note: when we say Diné, as opposed to Navaho or Navajo, we are referring to the people and not the government. Since 1969, their government refers to itself as the Navajo Nation.


Condition: the bracelet is in good condition. One of the stones has a small matrix fissure.

Provenance: this Diné Bracelet with Five Sky Blue Turquoise Cabochons is from a collection in Colorado.
