An unknown Diné silversmith employed the inventive use of stamps to fabricate this amazing Navajo Wide Silver Cuff with Medallion and Arrows Symbology. Using only four distinctive stamps, the talented smith created a series of intricate design elements.

For the center, the artist used a series of crescents and V shapes to fashion a circular medallion motif. The same elements, along with the addition of arrows, were used on the sides of the bracelet. It is a symmetrical and stylish piece of Southwest Indian Jewelry.

 

Condition: This Navajo Wide Silver Cuff with Medallion and Arrows Symbology  is in excellent condition.

Provenance: From a Colorado Southwest Indian Jewelry collection

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"
