This top-quality sterling silver and turquoise bracelet was created by Navajo silversmith, Virgil Begay. Virgil has a passion for excellence - using an old pawn finish and choosing the best quality stones - and this bracelet is no exception.
This sturdy bracelet measures 1-5/8 wide at the widest point, 5-1/4 inside end-to-end plus an opening gap of 1-1/4. It weighs a 81.6 grams. As reference, my wrist is 6 around (see last photo) and it is comfortably loose.
Brand new in perfect condition. It is stamped sterling and has Virgil Begay's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included and gift box included.
Virgil Begay, recently deceased, had been creating traditional Navajo jewelry for 25 years. He came from a family of well known silversmiths. His mother and father were both silversmiths
