This classic mid-century Navajo Silver and Turquoise bracelet is an example of the fine workmanship being done by artisans during the 1950s. A spectacular oval cabochon of high grade turquoise is set in a stylish frame that was formed by splitting the single band. The band was decorated with precise hand stamping. The final effect is one of traditional elegance. The bracelet is stamped, “HANDMADE” and “STERLING”.


Condition: The Single Turquoise Stone on Narrow Stamped Split Silver Band Navajo Bracelet is in excellent condition.

Provenance: From a Southwest Indian Jewelry collection in Colorado

Note: when we say Diné, as opposed to Navaho or Navajo, we are referring to the people and not the government.  Since 1969, their government refers to itself as the Navajo Nation.
