Harvey Era Bracelet!

(VJ-20) This is a fine, Fred Harvey era souvenir banded cuff bracelet with stamped decoration. It is an unmarked, older piece in sterling silver with seven round greenish turquoise color stones that are between 4 and 5mm in diameter. The bracelet weighs 32g. It is 1.5" at the widest measured top to bottom across the decorative face, opening is 1", the band graduates. This is a little big for my 6.5" wrist and the wide decorative stone set face is flat due to the settings which can't really be curved. The color of the stones is a little more muted than the images depict. Excellent condition, no damage or scratching noted. Close-ups click: 1 Here; 2; 3; 4; 5. $224.00
Size 7

(VJ-21) Here's a fun "peyote wave" bracelet I hand bead with all the great Southwestern colors and a copper sliding tube clasp. Let me know your wrist size, I'll custom stitch one for you. Mouse over or click above image for another view. More images click: here; here. $50.00
Size 7

(VJ-22) Rustic roped interesting shape marked sterling 925 vintage green turquoise Southwestern ring. A bit over Size 7. Solid, good weight, comfortable on. Stone/setting 7/8" long. Triple split shank detail either side of setting adds a lot of interest. Leaving polishing up to new owner. Stone has a pit showing some lighter material, not glaring, still very wearable. Mouse over or click above image for another view. More images click: here; here. $46.00
Size 8
Navajo Signed Ring

(VJ-23) Green natural turquoise nugget, engraved split band signed Stan Slim vintage Navajo ring. Size 7. Mouse over or click above image for another view. I believe this is silver. The SS is the silversmith's mark. Band is engraved all the way around. This is an older piece. More images click: here; here; here. $56.00
Heavy Watch Cuff Bracelet

(VJ-24) Heavy beautifully made vintage sterling silver & turquoise watch cuff bracelet weighing 72 grams (over 2.5oz with watch which is super light). Does not come with the watch shown, you can have your own inserted but pick one that winds up so you don't have to keep replacing it, the silver surround has to be bent to allow a watch to be inserted, fyi. This fits my 6.5" wrist rather tightly and won't bend much due to the thickness of the bracelet ends so this would best fit someone with a slightly smaller wrist than mine. Mouse-over or click above image for another view. There's no maker mark on this fine piece which shows some wear, use and age but not bad. More images click: here; here; here; here. $160.00 (silver worth nearly $50 in weight alone).
Unakite/Turqoise Ring
Size 6.5

(VJ-27) Vintage sterling silver, turquoise & unakite size 6.5 hand crafted ring. There's some brown matrix in the turquoise which is not damage even though it may look chipped in the image. All colors may vary in person, fyi. Unmarked. Mouse-over or click above image for back view. More images click: here; here; here. $52.00

Size 7
Signed
(VJ-28) Classic Benny Touchine (Navajo) marked large dome curved, border tooled turquoise and sterling silver size 7 ring. Mouse-over or click above image for back mark view. Benny, from Rehoboth, New Mexico (currently Church Rock) followed his famed father Tom in silver jewelry design, beginning in 1945 and continues today. This is over 1" long, weighs 7.3g. The color of the turqoise is a bit lighter and really nicer in person, sorry I could not capture the color exactly in these images. Close images click: here; here; here. $52.00
Sterling/Stone
Pierced Earrings

(VJ-31) Petite Southwestern "Zuni Sun" 950 marked green stone embellished pierced post earrings. Mouse-over or click above image for another view. These small earrings hang a maximum of 3/4". More images click: here; here. $12.00
Signed
Coral Earrings

(VJ-32) These Nastacio signed coral inlay earrings are classic. Hoop shape for pierced ears, they are small "lobe-hugger" dime size in diameter. 1/8" in width. The high quality coral inlay is set in smooth sterling silver. The Nastacio family is well known in the production of jewelry, they are Zuni, but I don't know which of the family, if any, made these. I will simply state these have Southwestern design and are sterling silver and natural coral material. Mouse-over or click image above for another view. Leaving the polishing up to you. Back mark and closer images click: here; here; here. $28.00

Size -6.5

(VJ-38) Ocean blue/green, charcoal veined, chrysocolla gemstone sterling marked vintage Southwestern design ring. Size just under 6.5. Center stone/setting is 5/8" high so this is not a huge ring. Delicate split shank, thin banded, comfortable to wear. Mouse over or click above image for side view. More images click: here; here; here. $39.00
Size 7.5

(VJ-39) Dainty roped border turquoise nugget marked 925 vintage Southwestern sterling ring. Center oval is 3/8". Border has a little spur you may wish to clip or file down a bit, seems as-made. Delicately split shank either side of setting. Size 7.5. More images click: here. $21.00
