A large triangular shaped stone is the focal point of this exemplary Fred Harvey style bracelet. An amazing large stone with a brilliant golden matrix was set in a handmade bezel and placed upon a delicate twisted wire. Two carefully appliquéd crescent shapes border the stone. 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.
