The 1960s and 1970s were a time of innovation for Native American artists. This multi-stone cuff is an example of the creativity of an unknown Navajo artist of that era. The artist placed 27 sky blue, high grade turquoise stones in rows of three with large silver drops in between the rows. All of these elements were placed on a solid cuff of silver that was oxidized to create a stunning contrast between the stones, the drops and the background. The bracelet is unsigned.  


Condition: The Navajo Turquoise Gemstone Silver Cuff with Silver Balls is in very good condition. The stones are all intact. There is a nice dark patina.

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

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"
