Vintage Native American Cerrillos Turquoise Bracelet
Here is a true classic piece of Native American Turquoise Jewelry from the 1930s. A wonderful example of why we all love Silver and Turquoise Jewelry, this Antique Cerrillos Turquoise Bracelet is from the famous Fort Defiance trading post collection of Francis Griswald. This awesome Navajo row bracelet focuses on seven natural Cerrillos Turquoise cabochons that are a gorgeous deep blue green color. The row is made up of 5 oval Turquoise cabochons and two teardrop American Turquoise cabochons. This natural American Turquoise cabochon from Cerrillos, New Mexico outside of Madrid, NM is a beautiful deep green color. The Cerrillos Turquoise claims are some of the oldest known Turquoise mines in the Southwest and were mined by Anasazi Indians. Each of the natural gemstones are set in Sterling Silver bezel and separated by classic raindrop designs. This bracelet is in good condition. We did not repair or tamper with the rare Turquoise stones and the ring is sold as is. This Antique Cerrillos Turquoise Row Bracelet is an exquisite example of pre-tourist trade American Indian Jewelry. It is hard to find pieces of vintage Turquoise jewelry this fine these days as people loved them so much most of these pieces are worn out. This Cerrillos Turquoise bracelet features a classic stamp work designed silver cuff bracelet as a background. The Antique Turquoise Bracelet does not have a Native American hallmark which is indicative to the timeframe it was made.
