A large triangular-shaped turquoise gemstone is the focal point of this exemplary bracelet. An amazing large gemstone with a brilliant golden matrix was set in a handmade silver bezel and surrounded by a delicate twisted silver wire. Two carefully appliquéd crescents border the turquoise. The shank was decorated with intricate stampwork. The bracelet is from the mid-20th century. It is unsigned. It is an especially well-made example of work that was made for the discerning Southwest traveler.

Provenance: from a Southwest Indian Jewelry collection in Colorado.
