    SOLD!  The Roanhorse name is legendary.  Eugene Roanhorse Crawford, Sr. (R.I.P) was one of the original 29 Navajo Code-talkers in WWII.  Harry C. Roanhorse was also a Navajo Code-talker.  The Roanhorse name is prevalent in Dine' jewelry-making as well.  The magnificent cuff above is made by Harry Roanhorse.  Harry Roanhorse began making jewelry in the 1980's.  We sometimes see his pieces listed as "vintage."  But true, authentic, Native American 'vintage' jewelry, however, is N.A. jewelry made in the 1960's or prior—made before the use of modern, powered jewelry-making tools.  This cuff is a nice example of Dine' craftsmanship.  And the Sleeping Beauty turquoise mine in Arizona closed in 2012, so these premium stones are a treasure as well.  The total inside circumference—including the one-inch 'gap'—is 6 and 5/8th's-inches.  Thus the total wrist circumference (measured around the wrist bone) needed to wear this cuff is 6.5-inches to 6.75-inches.  Don't be mislead by claims that a nice, substantially-made cuff like this is 'adjustable.'  Buy to fit.  Period.  Lengthwise across the top, it is 2 and 15/16th's-inches, and it is almost the same (2.75-inches) wide overall.  It weighs a respectable 96-grams, or 3.34-ounces.  It is not a thin, lightweight 'tourist version' of a cluster cuff.  And the turquoise is the real deal—not a bunch of compressed 'block' turquoise.  Hallmarked "ROANHORSE."  Complimentary USPS tracked Priority shipping within the U.S.
