This pretty Fred Harvey Era Zuni turquoise snake eyes cuff dates from the late Fred Harvey era in the 1950's. It is stamped sterling with no maker's mark as is common for the era. It would have been made for a shop to sell. It weighs 28.9 grams on my jewelry scale which is indicative of handwork and not machine made from blanks which were much lighter in weight (June 107). In addition, the snake eyes are bezel set which is another common characteristic of hand work. The sides of the cuff are stamped with Harvey era symbols such as the rattlesnake jaw as shown and more stamped snake eyes, symbols of strength. There are also silver raindrops on both sides of the snake eyes and between them as well. The cuff is in excellent condition with no damage, and I have not removed the patina of age. It will clean easily with a Sunshine cloth to whatever brightness of silver the new owner desires. Below are the dimensions to see if the cuff will meet your needs.
Gap: 1 and 1/2". This can be carefully made smaller, best done by your jeweler so as not to crack the cuff with too much pressure in the wrong places.
Interior diameter currently as found: 2 and 1/4"
Interior taped end to end: 5 and 1/4"
Total wearable size: 6 and 3/4"
I find the gap to be the most important indicator of size, and the gap can be carefully adjusted to meet your needs by your jeweler. This cuff can be worn by a medium size wrist, a smaller wrist if the gap is made smaller by your jeweler by applying pressure carefully. It is a lovely cuff from the mid-century, substantial in weight and indicative of being hand made. It will make a nice addition to your vintage Native American or Southwestern jewelry collection.
