If you truly appreciate the very best of high quality Native American jewelry this is one piece you simply must take a good look at.
This beautiful bracelet was handmade by the amazingly talented Navajo artist Delbert Gordon who is considered to be a Master Craftsman by his peers and by many Native American jewelry collectors.
Delbert, who's jewelry we've personally been wearing for several years, made this museum quality bracelet with three separate features.
First is the HUGE, absolutely gorgeous, very difficult to find, Old Tibetan turquoise stone that he set in a smooth silver bezel and surrounded with a silver twisted rope.
(In our opinion this stone, by itself, is worth the price of the entire bracelet).
Second is the bracelet's very unusual, and very attractive, five band shank that Delbert made with four carinated (three sided) bands and one twisted rope style band at the center.
Third are the dazzling silver applications that Delbert made, and applied, on both sides of the stone.
Here are some details:
The inside of the bracelet measures 5+1/2" long plus there's a gap of 1+1/8". It's 1+5/8" tall at the center and it weighed in at 85 grams.
The inside of the shank is stamped sterling and has Delbert's well known hallmark.
These days, with the cost of silver at an all time high, many Indian artists have been using lighter gauge (thinner) silver when making their new jewelry. However Delbert has chosen not to take that route and he is still using heavy silver in all of his new pieces.
Because of the thickness of the silver in this bracelet's shank it has practically no flexibility. Therefore we strongly suggest that any size adjustment should be made only by a professional jeweler or silversmith.
In addition to making a terrific addition to your jewelry collection
Delbert's bracelet can also be considered as a great investment because it's value will certainly increase as time passes.
