Handmade Navajo Turquoise Nugget Bracelet,This is a Vintage Navajo Nugget Turquoise Bracelet handmade around 1970 by Navajo Artisan, Ben Touchine. It was created in Sterling Silver with very nice stamp work and natural authentic Morenci Turquoise Nuggets. There is no question the Morenci Turquoise is natural as some of the Turquoise Nuggets have changed color from age.
The Navajo Stamp work is classic from the 1960’s -1980’s circa, as we purchased this Vintage Navajo Turquoise Bracelet from the Shonto Trading Post collection, we feel it is from the 1970’s.
The inner bracelet circumference measures 4 5/8 inches, plus an opening of 1 3/8 inches. 1 1/4 inches at the widest point. The bracelet weighs 48 grams. The shank is 2.91mm thick.
