Antique Collection, Circa 1940s, Silver with Carico Turquoise Cuff
One of the great things about old Navajo silver is the stones you will find on this antique creations. It wasn’t until early 1980s that Chinese turquoise arrived, so you usually have American rock before that date, except for some Persian Turquoise and a few rare Mexican stones. This cuff has incredible Nevada rocks, nine pieces of very collectible Carico Lake Turquoise. You will not believe the size of the center stone, the monster is over 2” tall. All of the rocks sit on a five wire shank that shows a wonderful aged patina. Every once in a while you find that piece that you should just get, no hesitation, this is one of those pieces. Not only will you look incredible with this on, but the rocks are unbelievable.
