A triangular-shaped cabochon of green turquoise with golden brown matrix is the focal point of this mid-century bracelet. The turquoise is set in a smooth-sided silver bezel and placed on a platform on which the artist filed small lines giving the bracelet a sunburst effect. The centerpiece is set on four bands with chiseled chevron lines. The initials “LP” are engraved on the back of the piece. It is not known to whom these initials belong.


Condition: The Four Band Bracelet with Triangle Shaped Stone is in excellent condition. The stone is intact and the silver has a nice patina.

Provenance: The bracelet comes from a Colorado Southwest Indian Jewelry collection.

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"
