The natural, desert landscape sunset hue petrified wood stone is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. The gem quality stone is firmly and securely set in a smooth silver bezel surrounded by silver rope on a plaque with expert hand stamped designs and raindrops.
1 1/4" long x 5/8" wide. The three (3) half-round band bracelet is finished with end caps and measures approx. 1 5/8" tapering to 3/8" wide.The interior circumference of the cuff is approx. 6 3/4" TOTAL including 1 1/4" opening. The cuff has some flexibility and weighs a hefty 38.9 grams - 1.25 ounces. This traditional, finely crafted NAVAJO. 925 Sterling Silver and Southwest Petrified Wood cuff bracelet by a highly skilled artisan would make an outstanding addition to any Twentieth Century Native American Silver and Stone Jewelry, Southwest American Petrified Wood or Historic Cultural Arts and Crafts collection.
We have been involved in the design and creation of contemporary jewelry at the undergraduate and postgraduate level since 1967. In 1975 we opened a gallery of hand wrought fine art contemporary jewels and have since handled thousands of unique, one of a kind and limited edition pieces crafted predominantly by American artisans with a special emphasis on Native American Art. Will be determined upon request. We believe our photos and description to be an accurate testament.
