This bracelet appears to be of the style often made in the 1970s where the jewels were set in a shadow box arrangement.  Additionally, the coral appears to be comprised of a mixture of powdered coral and a binding agent.  The result is a coral-color setting with a matte finish.

 

The silverwork is comprised of two silver strips as the exterior foundation and two silver twisted wires on the inner part.  Each stone is set in a silver bezel and mounted on a silver plate with an inner circle of silver and an outer circle of silver twisted wire.  Silver dots adorn both the outer silver bars. There is no identification of the maker for this Navajo Silver and Composite Coral Bracelet.

 

Condition: original condition

Provenance: from the collection of a Santa Fe family
