Old Navajo Sandcast Sterling Silver Bracelet w/ Big Green Turquoise StoneOld Navajo Sandcast Sterling Silver Bracelet w/ Big Green Turquoise StoneOld Navajo Sandcast Sterling Silver Bracelet w/ Big Green Turquoise StoneOld Navajo Sandcast Sterling Silver Bracelet w/ Big Green Turquoise Stone

We've been wearing, buying, selling, and admiring Native American jewelry for many decades and can safely say that this bracelet is one of the finest we've ever had (or seen elsewhere).

It's an old Navajo sandcast silver cuff bracelet with a most beautiful natural green turquoise stone that got some of its color and patina from age. This kind of turquoise has disappeared from the old mines...you only see it in the earlier pieces.

The bezel around the turquoise stone is unique and unusual with curled silver, styled beads and an overall artistic edge. It's definitely one of a kind and an older piece of wearable Navajo art.

The inside of the bracelet measures 5 3/4 inches with a 1 inch opening. It should fit a 6.5 to 7 inch wrist comfortably. The center measures 1 1/2 inches wide.

The bracelet is unsigned, circa 1940s/1950. It's quite hefty weighing 83 grams. This is at least 900 coin silver but tests as sterling (925).

About sandcasting...this technique was less frequently used because carving and heating the mold and pouring the silver required great skill and experience. Also, each sand mold produced only one or two casts and could not be reused.
