You may have noticed that the Drifter is willing to pay the price for No. 8 Mine turquoise. The mine closed in 1978 and coming-up with that beautiful turquoise now is both difficult and expensive. These No. 8 rocks contain a lot of copper matrix and really set the tone for this nice piece of wearable art. The Calladitto family is yet another of a long-line of masterful Navajo silversmiths. This is the kind of Native jewelry that sets High Plains Jewelry apart from a touristy shop that has touristy stuff. It appears to have 14-gauge Sterling (heavier gauge than normal) and lots of time-consuming, intricate hand-stamping. It is 1.25-inches across at the stone. The wearer needs to have about a seven-inch wrist circumference—which is a medium-large woman or a smaller man's size. It can adjust up or down about a quarter-of-an-inch. It weighs 2.7-ounces and is hallmarked "M&R Calladitto." Wish this piece was a 7.5-inch wrist size. Guess who would be wearing it then!
