• Tommy Moore' older Navajo cuff with pristine Sleeping Beauty turquoise. #2426

    There is only 1 item left in stock.

    This knockout traditional cuff flares-out toward each end, giving it quite a stylish appearance.  It has 15 pristine turquoise stones from the Sleeping Beauty Mine in Arizona that closed in 2012.  Some might describe it as vintage but it's just older—not "vintage."  Once more, we'll point-out that true vintage Native American jewelry is made prior to 1970, before Native artisans' widespread use of electric jewelry-making tools (if true vintage was still easily found you'd see it here!).  Tommy Moore is a long-time artisan and fairly renowned.  He creates jewelry in the traditional Navajo fashion. Total inside circumference is 6.75-inches. The wearer should have a total wrist circumference—measured all the way around the wrist bone—of 6 and 5/8th's to 6 and 7/8th's-inches,  Not a bit more and not a bit less.  It's built stout and has a lot of stones and is not "gently adjustable."  Measure twice; buy once.  We can't over-emphasize that enough. Width at the top is a hair shy of 1.75-inches, and tapers to one-inch on each side before flaring out to 1 and 1/8th-inches on the ends.  Weight is a respectable 80-grams, or 2.82-ounces.  Hallmarked with a moon rising over a butte with "TOMMY MOORE/ STERLING" just beneath (3rd pic).  We came across a cursive Tommy Moore hallmark, but that is either another person or an earlier stamping.  We've seen it with the butte for many years.  Complimentary USPS tracked Priority Shipping within the U.S.
