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 bezel and surrounded by  a delicate twisted 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.

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"
