Nine carefully cut rectangular shaped stones comprise this mid-20th century Navajo silver bracelet. The stones were cut and shaped and set into handmade bezels tapering from a larger center stone to gradually smaller ones as it reaches the shank. The shank is expertly stamped, with a series of geometric designs.  Small silver drops are interspersed between each stone. The turquoise and silver bracelet was skillfully made and the stones are of excellent quality.


Condition: The Nine Stone Navajo Turquoise Bracelet with Silver Drops is in excellent shape.

Provenance: The bracelet comes from a 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"
