Rare Vintage Native American Style Snowflake Obsidian (Apache Tears) Bracelet & Ring Sterling
This Magnificent Rare Vintage Set exhibits so many design elements of Native American work but it is unsigned. Many of the older pieces were not signed. This Set includes a Large Cuff & Matching Ring.
The Bracelet features (3) heavy, triangular sterling silver bands & (2) round shaped sterling silver bands (5 in all), supporting a large Bracelet Face that measures 2 1/2” L x 2 1/8” W. A Fantastic Polished Snowflake Obsidian Stone that measures 2” L x 1 1/2” W, set in a serrated bezel on center, with a twisted sterling silver wire border and a chain-like crescent decorative outer border. The Bracelet Shoulders are enhanced by large “V”- shaped overlaid sterling bars, with crescent overlays and sterling silver raindrops.
This Bracelet is beautifully made and the intricate chain-like work surrounding the stone setting is especially difficult to achieve, requiring great skill and patience on the part of the Artist/Silversmith. The inside measurement across is 2 1/2”, with a 1 3/8” wrist opening and fits a large wrist. The Bracelet wears slightly more than 4 oz. Excellent Condition – Not marked but tests Sterling Silver.
The Matching Ring fits a size 10 1/2. The Ring features a triple-split sterling silver band, supporting a 1 1/2” L x 1” W ring face. This Ring looks fantastic when worn alone! Excellent Condition. Not marked but tests Sterling Silver.
* Besides the fascinating stones and sizes of these works both pieces are very comfortable to wear.
Obsidian (also called Apache tears) is a dark natural glass - volcanic glass – formed by the cooling of molten lava.
Excellent Condition – Not marked but tests Sterling Silver.
Please note that this set has not been polished because we leave the decision whether or not to preserve the patina up to the Buyer.
