On the Trail of Quality Since 1976

JUST ACQUIRED: TWO MORE Navajo adjustable Sterling silver hat bands ringed with Kingman, Arizona turquoise.



    The Drifter has just returned October 1st after summer on the road where he acquired two more of these coveted hatbands.   Navajo Sterling silver hatbands have been around for a long time, but now most are ringed with "block" or compressed, processed stones derived from a blend of turquoise powder and turquoise chips that have been pulverized by a machine that adds a binding agent and compresses the powder into a block.  Even so, those hatbands require a lot of work and still cost $300 to $500 or more.  But all hatbands offered by the Drifter contain actual turquoise stones.  Here, they are beautiful Kingman, Arizona turquoise stones.  One has rectangular stones; the other has oval stones.  The Drifter has come across very few of these silver hatbands with real stones.  When he does he pays the price and snares it quickly to put it on this website.  Note: The price above is for each—NOT for both.   When ordering, simply call the Drifter at 817 456 5600 and specify either the rectangular Kingman turquoise, or the oval Kingman.  He can send additional pics to you of either.   And always remember, the Drifter's hat is NOT included in this offering—only the hatband!
