This vintage bracelet was made by an unknown Diné of the Navajo Nation jeweler. The piece is not marked with any kind of hallmark, so the artist's identity will likely remain mysterious.

A substantial silver band with round ridged edges holds three rows of turquoise stones. There are 31 stones in total, and each one sits snugly within its silver bezel. Small dots of silver appear between the bezels. Additional designs appear on the ends of the band, in the areas just past the rows of turquoise stones. The unknown jeweler's work is excellent, and the work is eye-catching.
