For almost 2,000 years, Native Americans of the American Southwest have favored the use of turquoise, fashioning beads, pendants, and other items from locally mined and traded blue and green stones. Contact with the Spanish, Mexicans, and Native people from the American Plains introduced new techniques of metalworking. After 1872, the Zuni of New Mexico, who had been working other metals since the mid-1800s, began working in silver, combining silver and turquoise in jewelry by about 1890.

Sensational in silver. An oval bluish-green turquoise cabochon is bezel-set in the center of this sterling silver openwork scroll design cuff. The Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian serves as inspiration for this stunning piece.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautifully Styled Bracelet I am a bracelet freak so here is yet another I have purchased. This has been on my wish list for a long time and I hesitated because of reviewers saying the silver is not substantial. Well, if you have tried on a original older bracelet of this design, then yes this is not as much silver but I guarantee you it is not what those bracelets cost with that amount of silver. It is sturdy and fits very nice. The design is spectacular and very true to what one would expect for a reproduction of this sort. I think I will be wearing this a lot. 10-12-14
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not worth the price The bracelet itself is attractive but feel the quality of the turquoise is not good quality ... At least in my bracelet. I did keep it, but wish I had returned it. I wear very seldom and wish I had returned it. 08-07-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not Good for Me The bracelet is very pretty but is very small, dainty and lightweight. I was desiring something a litle larger and heavier in weight. The design is very beautiful. I did not feel for me that the price and value were equal. I did return it and may re-order if the price becomes more reasonable for the value. 07-29-14

Rated 2 out of 5 by I feel badly. This is a beautiful bracelet but I was shocked. I was at a restaurant shaking a ketchup bottle and the turquoise stone simply fell out. I thought maybe I could hot glue it back in or cement the stone in and thought "no" , I paid too much for this. I am sending it back even though it is a lovely bracelet. I am sorry. 07-25-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by gorgeous! I was hoping to send some of the jewelry I bought on the July 4 show back but I love it all. This cuff is beautiful. The design is a reproduction from an authentic piece of Navajo jewelry in the smith. museum. Whether you know about this type of jewelry or not, it is wearable for everyone. I like the weight. the piece is not too heavy or too light. The turquoise is lovely-it's a green/blue shade. The silver work is beautiful. 07-11-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful piece of history I received this the other day & am pleased with my purchase. It does, in my opinion, have a significant amount of silver. The cabochon is not huge, but looks appropriate for the design of the bracelet. I like this & will be keeping & wearing it. I love the "roots" of the design from native American culture. 04-17-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very light...hollowed out. I ordered this bracelet, but was disappointed that it didn't have the weight most southwest silver bracelets have. It looks good in the picture, but don't expect much silver. Kind of felt cheap on my arm due to lightness. 11-02-12
