Here we have a gorgeous old piece, a seven stone turquoise cuff featuring the kind of rare old high grade turquoise that we no longer see--creamy and dreamy in some stones, all matrixed, aqua blue green to sky blue to bright blue. The stones extend well above the smooth bezels, and all seven bezels sit on heavy gauge twist wire. Large silver "raindrops" between each bezel. This is a design we see in older pieces, and the deep patina on this tells us it is indeed quite old. We estimate this to be at least 1950s, and possibly older. Because the piece is unsigned, we cannot say with certainty that it is Native American; however, we believe the piece is Navajo. ***Note that the piece is missing two of raindrops at one end--see Photo 6 for a comparison of how it looks. Also, the piece has been repaired on the end missing the raindrops in that the cable was no longer connected to the end, and it now is reconnected.***
The bracelet measures just about 5-3/4" around using a tape measure on the inside, with a 1-1/8" gap--which might seem perfect for a smaller sized wrist. But, the way the bracelet is made, with a wide flat profile versus a more rounded one, the piece is actually better suited for a medium size wrist. The bracelet is just about 5/8" wide at the widest point. The turquoise cabs in the middle extend up to 1/2"--this style was popular in the past for the way the turquoise extended above the arm and was visible for all to admire. The silver carries a deep patina and natural oxidation, which gives the raised cabochons depth.
Old turquoise, old pawn, unusual old design!
