A nice old piece of Navajo pawn. The circumference is seven inches. The turquoise is, possibly, Bisbee turquoise with a dark bluish green colour with black spider webbing. I am not positive. It has not been polished. On a lot of Navajo jewelry no silver mark was shown prior to 1930. There is no mark on this piece but I had it tested and it is 900+ purity. The stone, itself, measures 1 1/8" x 11/16" at the highest point.
It is a very simple piece and could have been made by one family member for another. I think that it's possible that the turquoise ornament was added to a preexisting bracelet.
Thank you for looking..
