This Dead Pawn Native American coral and silver bracelet was recently obtained from one of our favorite little pawn shops in Gallup, New Mexico. This Navajo silver bracelet is covered end-to-end with pieces of genuine coral (18 total). The stones are all in excellent condition, with no cracked or loose stones, set in serrated bezels. The bracelet is a traditional Navajo bracelet with silver raindrop beads flanking each stone, an oxidized background, twisted silver ropes and hand stamped edges.
The bracelet measures 1 inch wide at the front, narrowing to 1/4 inch wide at the terminals. The inside end-to-end measurement is 5-3/8 inch plus there is a 1 inch slightly adjustable gap. It weighs 25.2 grams. The exact age of the bracelet is unknown. Excellent condition!
Hallmarked IC and Sterling. According to "Hallmarks of the Southwest by Barton Wright", this hallmark is attributed to Navajo silversmith Irene Chiquito
