Hello, up for your consideration today is this tastefully simple everyday bracelet by Russ Rockbridge. As you may know, Carico Lake turquoise is in the top tier as far as classic collector stones. This is a very affordable way to get a very desirable piece of turquoise as well as a great artist! This bracelet is in pristine condition as well as having great symmetry. The shadow box design is a traditional Navajo creation. The natural Carico Lake cabochon is surrounded by a serrated bezel and has very clean, precise stamp work. There is a patina spot on my photo but that will be buffed off before you receive it. Know that this bracelet is in perfect vintage condition and looks amazing!
