Vintage, Native American made, 1930’s Zuni Petti Point cluster natural American Turquoise bracelet. This is great vintage bracelet to add to any collection or start a new collection of Vintage or Old Pawn Native American Jewelry. This classic Zuni Petti Point cluster bracelet features 76 teardrop natural Turquoise cabochons and on larger oval Turquoise cabochon. These American Turquoise stones are most likely from the Villa Grove Turquoise mine in Colorado. This bracelet has a really nice feel to it and has obviously been worn with care. It probably started its life 80 years ago as a bright medium blue Turquoise cluster bracelet. Over time the stones have natural aged and changed colors from human wear giving the bracelet a wonderful antiqued finish that clear shows its vintage. Absolutely wonderful!
