Southwestern Sterling Turquoise Cuff Bracelet, Snake Eyes, 6.25", 1960's-1970's, 17.93gr.
Southwestern Sterling Turquoise Cuff Bracelet, Snake Eyes, 6.25", 1960's-1970's, 17.93gr. This is a double band, and is 1/2" wide with a dozen appx. 3.5mm turquoise snake eyes stone. This is a Zuni style bracelet. The inside measurement is 5" with an opening at 1.25" for a total of 6.25". This is more for a slender wrist. You should be able to slide it on without trying to spread it open as over time, that can cause fractures. Each of the turquoise snake eye stones are sawtooth bezel-set - the are recessed slightly from the edges and have a rope accent down each side. The band is 1/2" across and tapers down to about 1/4" at the back of the wrist. Age is appx. 1960's. It is not signed by the artist. Definite great Southwestern/Native American piece. This is in good to very good condition with only light wear and typical tarnish that can be polished to be bright and look new but that wipes away it's history/character and most vintage buyers prefer it as is. This came from a PA estate where the person had quite a few Southwestern/Native American pieces that I was fortunate enough to get. See Photos. (Lot. Loc. W.4.2118G.2X5 - LD 5/6/18).
We carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. We have our own store and are and have been known as stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. At one point we had a gift shop/rubber stamping store and switched over to vintage jewelry about six years ago on a full time basis, which also including taking and completing gemology classes as well as jewelry appraisal studies. We carry limited other vintage items and am trying to change our presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the migration is complete. You can find us on pinterest where all ebay items and other venues are categorized - mariasvinta0654.
If the item is over $50.00 for international mailing will need be sent with insurance at the buyer’s cost. That may require separate invoicing.

Thank you for stopping by, mariasvintage.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
