This listing is for a vintage handcrafted Navajo cuff bracelet made of sterling silver and Kingman Turquoise. This beautifully well kept cuff was made by a Navajo Artist, Ted Joe and is in excellent vintage condition.
The cuff is made with a wide single shank of solid silver. The outer edges of the cuff face are highly detailed with elaborate hand stampings that run from end to end. A classic twisted rope runs parallel with the hand stampings to box in a stunning row of 13 Kingman stones.
Each stone protrudes out of a sawtooth bezel and is accompanied by silver droplets on each side of the cuff. The stones and droplets run from end to end and cover the entire face of the cuff. A small space exists between each stone letting the oxidized silver beneath create a great sense of depth and dimension.The design is executed in such a professional manner creating a stunning piece of work. The stones have a deep and bold sky blue hue with black spotty matrixes running throughout. The front middle stone is the only stone that has a greener hue and its the largest while the rest very slowly taper down in size to each end. They are all in perfect mint condition! Even though this item is vintage and has the desired aged patina, it looks as if it was rarely worn. Add this cuff bracelet to your collection of fine Native American jewelry or make it the first piece in the collection youve always wanted. This one is a true beauty!!
