For a while i’ve been searching my area for a NA bracelet with chunky bright turquoise stones. And recently i was lucky enough to find one, as part of a set together with a ring. I initially tried to purchase the cuff only, but got a nice enough deal to include the ring as well. Turns out i’m pretty happy with both, i really like the bracelet and find the ring very nice in real life as well.
I purchased them from a gentleman who wrote that he bought them from an Native Indian man in the USA in the 70s. He said he wore the items 2 or 3 times at the time before they ended up in a drawer. I love the patina on the silver and i’m glad that the seller didn’t clean the items, since he said he had considered doing so before shipping them.
I think that the bracelet is made by Navajo artist couple Damon and Marie Thompson and that the stones are Sleeping Beauty turquoise.
The ring i could not find any info on though. It does look authentic to me and it’s marked HR Sterling, but i could not find any match for those initials. If anybody recognizes the hallmark and/or style then i’d love to hear it.
p.s. i don’t wear them on the same hand because i think it’s a bit ‘much’, but thought it would make a nice photo
