This listing is for a rare and valuable Navajo handcrafted cuff bracelet, made of sterling silver and multiple gemstone inlays. This desirable cuff bracelet was expertly crafted by the well known and renowned Navajo Artist, Ray Tracey Knifewing. Made with a heavier gauge solid silver, the single shank cuff is strong and sturdy. The entire face of the cuff features flush inlaid gemstones from end to end. The three stones chosen for this piece were turquoise, pink coral, and sugilite......Pink, purple, and turquoise, a girls dream color combo! Each stone was hand cut into 4 sided rectangles and precisely placed within the cuff face. The turquoise has a pale sky blue hue with some stones having no matrix at all and others having heavy dark spiderwebbed matrixes. The coral has a hazy shade of pinkish orange with subtle matrix lines running throughout. The sugilite has several shades of purple ranging from a light pinkish purple to a dark purple. In total, there are 69 stone inlays, with 28 turquoise, 23 sugilite, and 18 coral. The three colors contrast nicely together creating a soft feminine look. Wafer-thin silver channels are placed throughout the face as well, running North to South.
There are a total of 24 silver channels. The silver used to create the cuff is thick and hearty, so there is no give at the gap. Its a very solid well made bracelet weighing in at 71 grams.
The ends of the cuff have smooth edges making application to the wrist comfortable and effortless. The Artists signature Picto hallmark along with a sterling stamp resides on the inside of the cuff. A gorgeous piece with an intricate and complex design, great for todays trending bohemian styles and perfect to stack with other cuffs. This bracelet make a wonderful addition to any existing collection of fine Native American jewelry.....
Cherish and enjoy this cuff for now.... And hand it down to loved ones in the future.
