No. 8 Turquoise mine Sterling cluster cuff by Gilbert Tom, Navajo



This is a collaborative piece where the Drifter chooses the stones and specifies the gauge of the Sterling silver, and Navajo master silversmith Gilbert Tom fashions the piece.  No. 8 mine turquoise looks a lot like Dry Creek turquoise, and costs even more in most instances.  This cuff has eleven nice-sized pieces.  The silver patina is Gilbert Tom's usual "old-style."  It weighs 3.6 ounces and fits a wrist circumference of 6.75-inches—which is a woman's medium.  Hallmarked "Gilbert Tom."  Note:  In the waning days of 2018 Mr. Tom suffered a fall and had to be airlifted to an Albuquerque hospital.  We pray for his full recovery.
