A fine Navajo ingot-silver bracelet set with

three turquoise stones, circa 1940’s-1950’s



A very unusual and really striking design, this marvelous bracelet features three beautiful, brilliant blue turquoise stones, possibly from the Blue Gem Mine in Nevada, each set in a plain old-style “foldover-type” silver bezel upon its own rectangular shaped silver platform. These three platforms form the center portion of the tufa-cast silver shank. The shank is decorated with finely-detailed crescents of stampwork between the three bases.


The maximum width of the bracelet is 13/16”. The inner circumference is 5 7/8” end-to-end and the gap between terminals is 1 1/8” for a total interior circumference of 7”. The bracelet weighs 49 grams or 1 3/4 ounces. The bracelet is in excellent original condition. There is the tiniest hairline crack in one of the side stones but it poses no problem at all. we have polished this bracelet so it might not look as old as it is. There is a lightly scratched-in old Trader’s code or initials inside the bracelet which reads “D U K”.
