This listing is for an older Navajo cuff bracelet, dating back to the mid century, featuring an abundance of silver work and old Kingman Turquoise. This incredibly massive Navajo cuff is nothing short of a masterpiece. With its large face, 40 Kingman stones, and top-notch silver work, it is sure to not disappoint an avid collector of vintage Native American jewelry.
The wide single shank has an oxidized surface in near mint condition causing the bright stones to pop off the surface. The edges of the cuff are slightly raised and feature classic Navajo hand stampings all the way around. Just inside the raised edges, a classic twisted rope surrounds the entire face framing the 40 Kingman stones that adorn it. Each stone is held securely in a scalloped bezel while large silver droplets rest in between them throughout the entire surface of the face.
The stones adorning the front of the cuff are positioned in three rows with the center row being larger than the two outer rows. All three rows graduate in size starting off smaller at each end and becoming larger as they near the front center. They have a satin-polished finish along with varying textures as they slightly protrude out of their bezels. The color hues are beautiful being several pastel shades of blue and green. Each stone has a fair amount of matrixes including black spotty matrixes and shimmery golden pyrite.Several of the stones look to have hairline cracks but, they are matrix lines.... Please do NOT confuse the two.... ALL 40 stones used in this piece are in excellent condition!
