Description

Okay people, look at this picture and notice the thickness of this old cuff.  That's the way it should be.  That's the way it used to be.  Look around the web and see how many of these you can find.  It's a great cuff and actually should be priced a lot more.  Back when it was easier to acquire pawn jewelry—before the days of the casinos; the demise of some of the favorite mines; the soaring price of silver, and before the world-wide web made Native American jewelry quickly accessible to anyone anywhere, the Drifter saw a change a'comin and bought-up a really large amount of it.  This is one of those pieces.  If he had to acquire this today it would likely cost $600 or more wholesale.  It's both simple and dressy and bespeaks volumes of Native American crafting in the days before bling and crass emerged.  The inside circumference of this cuff is 6.75-inches.  The person purchasing this cuff needs to have a wrist size of 6 and 5/8th's-inches to only a hair more than 6.75-inches.  It has too many stones fashioned in the given arc to go-about changing the shape.  One would disturb the integrity of the settings by attempting to change the shape.  So go to a dollar store and buy a tailor's cloth tape for a dollar and measure your wrist all the way around the wrist bone.  If it doesn't fit you must acquit—just look for something else.  Width of this cuff is about a half-inch throughout.  Weight is 64-grams, or 2.23-ounces.  Hallmarked, "TF."  Always complimentary Priority shipping within the U.S.
