Heavy Native American handmade sterling silver & turquoise bracelet, created by Navajo silversmith, Gilbert Tom. A single stunning natural Kingman Web turquoise stone is set in an old pawn style setting. The applied silver work, repousse and deep stamp work accentuate the beautiful stone. The natural turquoise stone is a dark turquoise color with tight black spiderweb matrix. Gilbert Tom manages to bring together the traditional vintage look with the refined silver work of today.
The bracelet measures 1-3/8 inch wide with an inside end-to-end measurement of 5-1/2 inch plus a 1-1/4 inch opening gap and weighs 122.5 grams. My wrist is 6 inches around and the bracelet is too loose for me.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift Box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Hallmarked by the artist, Gilbert Tom.
Navajo artist Gilbert Tom learned silversmithing from the late legendary master silversmith Harry Morgan. Gilbert has created his own distinctive "old" Navajo style jewelry and manages to bring together the traditional vintage look of yesterday with the refined silver work of today.
