This Navajo hand made sterling silver bracelet is set with a natural Royston turquoise stone, bright green-blue in color with golden brown matrix. The Royston stone is is perfect condition, with no cracks or blemishes. In the photos, the matrixes almost look like cracks but I assure you they are NOT cracks.
The scalloped sterling silver cuff bracelet is heavily decorated with silver raindrop beads, applied repousse silver work, stamped hogan beads, twisted silver rope, and traditional stamping end to end. An antique satin finish completes the old-style look.
The sturdy bracelet measures almost 7/8 inches wide, with an inside end-to-end measurement of 5-1/4 inches plus there is an opening gap of 1 inch. The bracelet weighs 58.6 grams.
It is stamped sterling and has Darryl Becenti's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included and gift box included.
I am selling this bracelet on consignment for a friend. The bracelet is about 4 years old and has seldom been worn. It is in perfect, like-new condition.
