$995.00
This heavy-silver, masterly-crafted cuff is one of the best buys we have.  Made by Rick Martinez, part of a famous family of Navajo silversmiths, it is a piece of stunning Navajo wearable art, and is, indeed, 'statement' jewelry.  'Makes the Drifter want to explore bariatric surgery to lose enough weight to wear it himself.  The Royston, Nevada center turquoise stone is nice—real nice, but those thick-gauge Sterling silver conchos in either side of the stone take home the bacon.  The framework his six strands.  That's right, six—and three are twisted!  Most have three-or-so thinner ones.  It's a biggie.  It is two-inches across at the top, including bezel and stone.  Total inside circumference (including the 'gap' in the cuff) is 6.5-inches.  It absolutely cannot be made smaller.  Prior to shipping, it could be enlarged an eighth of an inch-or-so.   Measure twice; buy once.  Weight is 129-grams, or 4.55-ounces.  Hallmarked "R. Martinez."  The Drifter acquired this with about a half-dozen Martinez family pieces 2 or 3 years ago.  Prices have nearly doubled since then, and this wonderful piece would likely be priced for many hundreds more elsewhere.   Always free Priority shipping within the U.S.  Enjoy.
