This Navajo Nation vintage silver and turquoise bracelet has a wonderful variety of turquoise shapes, sizes, and colors to display on the silver band. The large turquoise cab in the center is blue-green; surrounded by two slightly smaller ones that are green. Adjacent to one of these is a pair of deep blue turquoise cabs, and on the other side is a pair of green cabs. It is this mixture of turquoise from different mines that adds to the beauty of this bracelet and identifies it as a vintage piece, probably from the 1920s.

The silver band is scalloped on its edges and has stamped feather-like designs at its ends. One of the ends shows wonderful wear patterns. This is truly a classic bracelet evidencing a life approaching a century.
