It's a good-looking old cuff bracelet. A fine piece of Southwest turquoise is set in a sterling silver band, stamped with Navajo designs. This is exactly the kind of bracelet tourists would buy on a trip out west, stopping at the Fred Harvey restaurants / trading posts. The puzzling thing is that the hallmarks inside say MEXICO TP-54, indicating this was made in Taxco Mexico, circa 1970s.
This one is especially nice with a split band on top, holding the good-size natural turquoise stone. It has just the right amount of matrix and a beautiful color.
The bracelet measures 1 inch wide on top and tapers around the sides to 5/16 inch wide. The inside measures 5 3/8 inches end-to-end with a 1 1/8 inch gap for a total circumference of 6 1/2 inches around, a perfect fit for a medium-size wrist. The bracelet weighs 26 grams.
We've left the naturally-aged patina for you to polish or not. The bracelet is in excellent condition. It's an odd one...the look of Southwest Navajo with a mark that indicates it's South Southwest. Both very desirable locales for jewelry.
