A large green oval turquoise stone with a unique gold matrix is the focal point in this bracelet made by Santa Fe jeweler, musician and poet Jerry Faires. A silver cast base plate has three chiseled bands, two on the exterior sides of the bracelet and one down the center. Four silver drops with stamped sunburst designs frame the center cabochon, which is set in a handmade bezel surrounded by twisted wire.

Unlike the thinner gauge silver bracelets made for the tourist market, this bracelet has a pleasingly heavy gauge which makes for a very comfortable fit.  It is made of hand-hammered ingot silver. The substantial silver has developed a beautiful patina from long-time wear.

Condition: this Heavy Silver Content Bracelet with Single Green Turquoise Stone by Jerry Faires is in excellent condition.

Provenance: From a Colorado Southwest Indian Jewelry collector.  Even though this bracelet does not have a Jeweler's hallmark, the artist personally identified it as his work at Adobe Gallery.

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"
