RARE Vintage Navajo Sterling Silver Turquoise Multi Stone Inlay Cuff Bracelet
Thank you for being loyal buyers and patient during this time.. This listing is for an extremely rare and valuable Navajo handcrafted cuff bracelet, made of sterling silver and multiple gemstone inlays. This desirable style cuff bracelet was created by contemporary Navajo Artist, Harold Stevens Jr. I urge you to search his work on this site! The face of the cuff features several flush inlaid gemstones including turquoise, variscite, lapis, onyx, wildhorse turquoise, and dinosaur bone agate. Two wafer thin silver channels accompany the inlays as well. The inlays are cut into geometric shapes and lay flush with the thick silver shank. Stevens added his personal touch with unusual cuts on each side of the cuff where the onyx and wildhorse was used, with one end having deep stampings shooting off a tiny triangular onyx inlay. Large rectangular cutouts to the shank were added just before each end with the shank also having a short 45 degree angle. Tiny details of this nature make this piece standout from the rest, for example the sliver of lapis that rests on the outer edge of the face…. Its details like this that most people never even see but, make it that much more extraordinary.. The inside of the cuff is highly detailed as well, with a raised blue lapis stone on one end and two flush turquoise inlays on the opposite end. Small puncture holes were also added inside the cuff next to the large silver cutouts. SOOO MUCH DETAIL ON THIS PIECE! A raised silver plate rests as the center of the inside, showing the Artists signature Picto hallmark and a sterling stamp. 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. The edges of the cuff have smooth sleek lines making application to the wrist effortless. A gorgeous piece with an intricate and complex design, great for todays trending bohemian styles and perfect to stack with other cuffs. Will 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. Weight – 52 Grams.
