Navajo Silver and Turquoise Bracelet with Three Beautiful Stones - C4069C
Three stunning deep blue cabochons are the centerpiece of this unique bracelet. As we are not experts in turquoise, we are not going to attempt to label the source of these stones. The depth and variation in color are spectacular regardless of its origin. The center cabochon is an irregular shaped rectangle set in a smooth handmade bezel surrounded by a small twisted wire and four star shaped silver drops. On either side of the center are two similarly shaped stones whose remarkable black matrix adds an almost three dimensional aspect to the bracelet.
The three unique stones are carefully soldered onto a solid base consisting of two twisted wires and two substantial bars of sterling silver. A small stamped crescent is appliqued on each side at the top of the shank where the four sections of silver merge. The bracelet dates from the mid 20th century. Nature created a masterpiece when she created these stones and an unknown, talented Diné silversmith set the masterpiece in silver.
