This is a Signed Bell Trading Post Nickel Silver Turquoise 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. It has the Bell/Sterling with the Bell symbol mark on the back. The metal is nickel silver (800 German silver). The bracelet has stamp decoration around the cuff. The turquoise stones have a serrated bezel. The bracelet measures 5 3/8 inches around plus a 1 1/8 inch gap. The width is 7/8 inch at the center medallion. There is some flexibility for size adjustment. The bracelet fits my 6 1/4 inch wrist but the gap is too big.
