On the Trail of Quality Since 1976
On the road now; new finds will post this fall!

Sterling and turquoise Navajo cuff by Leon Martinez.



Leon Martinez (and his sons, as well) make very substantial, well-crafted pieces at affordable prices.  The silversmithing on this one was undoubtedly time-consuming, and the choice of turquoise and the thicker gauge Sterling contribute to this being a nice choice for a purchase.  Weight is a respectable-for-its-size 2.2-ounces.  The size (including the "gap") is 6 and 1/4th-inches, and it is two-inches across at the widest point of the stone—which appears to be from the Kingman, Arizona turquoise mine.  Hallmarked, "Leon MTZ."
