Bracelets of this style have been described as Fred Harvey bracelets, an identification of a style popularized by the Fred Harvey Company in the 1920s.  They were made by Diné craftsmen and sold through the Fred Harvey Company at its hotel and railroad gift stores.  The silver used for such was generally thin which allowed for the bracelet to be carefully bent inward or outward to adjust for different wrist sizes. 

This bracelet has three beautiful sky blue turquoise cabs, each set in bezels and mounted on a scalloped and stamped silver backing which was then mounted on the bracelet shank. The ends of the Diné Silver Bracelet with Three Turquoise Stones were stamped with traditional Indian symbols, particularly arrows as in this example.

 

Condition: excellent condition

Provenance: this Navajo Silver Bracelet with Three Turquoise Stones is from a family in Santa Fe
