• Wide, 24-turquoise stone Kathleen Chavez Navajo cuff. #2086

    There is only 1 item left in stock.

    This cuff is a little older and was bought from an old pawn shop on historic Route 66, but it is not old enough to be considered "vintage."  Dealers who continually label slightly used items as "vintage" is one of our pet peeves.  One more time: for Native American jewelry to be legitimately considered "vintage," it must have been made in the 1960's or prior.  Very few of the things we see on the internet listed as vintage are actually such (makes one wonder about any other 'claims' they make!).   Anyway, some of the stones here are appearing to change hue, which is an indicator of age (and why we can't be certain of type of turquoise) but the silver patina; the slightly thinner gauge and the smithing don't indicate a lot of aging.  Ms. Chavez could have used older stones, of course.  It remains that this is a very attractive cuff and an excellent buy at the price listed.  It is almost two-inches wide and weighs a respectable 3.75-ounces, or 106.3-grams.  Total inside circumference—including the gap—is seven inches.  It has a little flex, but still, the wearer must have a wrist circumference (measured around the wrist bone) of 6 and 7/8th's to 7 and 1/8th-inches.  Measure twice; buy once. Hallmarked "Kathleen C."  Complimentary USPS tracked Priority shipping within the U.S.
