Here's a vintage Zuni cuff bracelet that's sheer perfection. It's handcrafted by Native American silversmith L.J. Lonasee. His lapidary skill is obvious...two rows of high-quality Sleeping Beauty turquoise nuggets lie in perfect rows along the top.
The stones are pure turquoise, with no matrix to obscure the superb color. They're set in saw-tooth bezels. There's diamond-shaped engraving along the sides.
The bracelet measures 3/8 inch wide. The inner measurement is 6 1/2 inches around which includes the 1 1/4 inch opening.
The bracelet is signed L.J. LONASEE in Gothic letters which was his early hallmark from 1975. The bracelet is not marked but tests for sterling. It weighs 17.9 grams. We don't polish silver as some people prefer the natural aged patina. Condition is excellent.
