About The 1920's-1930's Three Row Silver Cuff One Mountain Turquoise

Ingot silver (sterling quality) and natural highest grade Lone Mountain turquoise were used to create this dramatic cuff.  

The bracelet body is composed of three hammered shank strips tapering to a joining bar at each terminal.  Rows of flattened, smelted silver drops join these shank straps with a precision alignment echoed by decorative drops bordering the cuff along the front half.  These drops frame a massive display of 39 pillow cut rectangular turquoise stones, all perfectly spaced with the drops ! 

 These cabochons are Lone Mountain Nevada material of deepest, intense blue green with webbing of darkest brown to red matrix.  Each strone is framed and secured by a hand-cut serrated bezel that subtly compliments its stone and the arrangement in its entirety.  Use of a single gable peak stamp repeated, artfully, along the tapering shank bars, dresses the bracelet sides to the terminals.
