This is a Vintage Turquoise Cuff Bracelet Sterling Silver Wheeler Manufacturing WM Mark South Dakota. This sterling silver (marked) and turquoise bracelet has the conjoined WM Co mark for Wheeler Manufacturing of Lemmon, South Dakota. They have been in business since 1946 and are a leading provider of jewelry for tourists and souvenir retailers. This bracelet is very similar to the tourist souvenir bracelets sold at the Bell Trading Post. The bright turquoise stone has a tight horizontal hairline. The cuff is profusely stamp decorated, including lightning and bear claw. The bracelet weighs 15.4 grams and measures 5 1/4 inches around plus a 1 3/8 inch gap. The width at the center is 3/4 inch. There is some flexibility to the cuff. The bracelet is a little too big for my 6 1/4 inch wrist.
