This is a Vintage Bell Trading Post Green Turquoise Sterling Silver Cuff Bracelet Native American. The Bell Trading Post was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1935 by Jack Michelson and his wife Mildred. They sold Native American Indian jewelry at various tourist locations in the southwestern United States until the late 1980s. The ring has the Bell Trading Post signpost mark and the word sterling. The oval turquoise stone is green with some brown matrix. The band has stamp decoration that includes rain clouds, arrows, and feathers. There is some tarnish/patina. The bracelet measures 6 1/2 inches around, including the 1 1/8 inch gap (it has been bent to this size). The stone is 7/8 inch long. The bracelet weighs 14 grams and fits my 6 inch wrist just about right.
