As is the case more often that not with the earlier Native American jewelry, this piece is not marked for silver content nor maker. However, it tests positive as coin silver or better. When I test jewelry for silver content, I never drop the testing solution directly on the piece of jewelry since the acid could damage the piece. Rather I rub the jewelry against a testing stone and drop the acid on the testing stone. Excellent vintage condition. The exact age of the bracelet is unknown.
