Vintage Native American Huge Sterling Turquoise Cuff Bracelet
This impressive Native American bracelet is a beautiful vintage piece! Crafted in sterling silver, the bracelet is beautifully hand crafted and has a wide cuff design. A large turquoise stone is set at the center, held within a decorative bezel frame. Two rows of twisted sterling wire form a "rope" and "coil" pattern, adding wonderful texture to the design! The natural turquoise stone displays a beautiful range of rich green and blue colors, including natural brown mineral inclusions throughout. The sides of the bracelet have a stacked wirework cuff, with large beadwork accents and an opening at the back where the bracelet can be slipped on and off the wrist. A beautiful statement piece, it is a must for any turquoise lover or Native American jewelry collector!
Measurements: The interior of the bracelet (where a wrist would rest) measures approximately 2 3/8" wide and 2 1/4" tall. It would fit nicely on a medium to large sized wrist. The bracelet's centerpiece measures about 2 3/4" tall, 2 3/8" wide, and 3/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting or to the turquoise stone, which is intact and securely set. There is a natural darkened patina throughout the silver setting, which is normal and adds further depth to the design.
