THE PHOTOS JUST DON'T DO THIS PIECE JUSTICE! This sensational vintage Native American handmade Sterling silver bracelet features KNOCK OUT HIGH GRADE Natural Turquoise set in EXPERTLY CRAFTED Silverwork made in the very TRADITIONAL Row design. Seven beautiful Blue with a Hint of Green Tones from age hand cut turquoise stones dominate this impressive piece of Navajo artistry. Individually stamped silver drops further enhance the beauty of this piece. There are a couple of other features that demonstrate HIGH QUALITY and differentiate this piece from the modern row bracelets that you see today. 1. As I point out in the photo, the center wire is actually SQUARE and the outside wires were hammered to a half-round shape from a flat thick piece making this piece quite heavy. 2. The three wires are secured at the terminals with tabs. The solder back before 1960 was a little more difficult to deal with than today's solder. 3. Each of the drops are hand-stamped and expertly placed in order to maintain balance and a very attractive look. 4. Inside the terminal it is stamped "Handmade Navajo" which was typically used by large trading posts that sold to tourists such as Garden of the Gods in order to distinguish between HIGH Quality Native American HANDMADE pieces from those of lesser quality. This is a MAGNIFISCENT bracelet that is simply timeless, can easily be worn stacked, is heavy and looks amazing on the wrist. What a wonderful addition to any collection.
