This top-quality sterling silver and turquoise bracelet was created by Navajo silversmith, Virgil Begay, deceased. Virgil had a passion for excellence - using an old pawn finish and choosing the best quality stones. The inside, as well as the outside, of this sterling silver cuff bracelet is intricately stamped from end to end. This is a top quality one-of-a-kind Navajo bracelet!
This bracelet features three Morenci turquoise stone. The stones are the color of the deep blue New Mexico sky with black matrix.
The bracelet measures 3/4 inches wide with a 5-3/4 inch inside circumference end-to-end plus a 1-1/4 inch opening gap. As reference, my wrist is 6 around (see last photo) and the bracelet is very loose on me. It weighs a 73 grams (that's over 2-1/2 ounces!).
Exceptional quality and workmanship.
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 passed away recently and he 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
