A vintage Navajo ingot-silver bangle bracelet set with 7 rare, high-grade, Bisbee, Arizona turquoise stones, circa 1940’s-50’s


This bracelet is the sort of piece that one euphemistically refers to as being “the kind”--a fantastic, older-style Navajo bracelet with all the “bells and whistles” one could ever want, knock-down gorgeous turquoise stones set on a beautifully-crafted beveled silver shank accented by really great-looking stampwork.


This fairly heavy (for its relatively narrow width) bracelet features a row of 7 oval-shaped, high-domed, natural turquoise stones from the famed Bisbee Mine in Southern Arizona. “Bisbee Blue” turquoise is considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful, finest and rarest types of gem turquoise and these stones are great examples. The stones are very well-matched and are in fine original condition. The space between the stones is beautifully-accented with finely-executed, hatched stampwork and the bracelet shank ends with nicely-rounded terminals.


The bracelet measures 1/2" in width at the center and tapers slightly at the terminals. The interior circumference end-to-end is 5 5/8", the gap between the terminals is 7/8" for a total interior circumference of 6 1/2” and it weighs 43 grams or 1 1/2 ounces.  The bracelet is in excellent original condition. This is a truly classic, older bracelet-one that you’ll be justifiably proud to wear anywhere, anytime.
