I have been buying estate jewelry forever and now it`s your chance to purchase a great deal. I would rather offer it to the public then scrap any of my unique items. I do not like a reserveand start all of my jewelry at $9.99 no matter how much it`s worth.What a fabulous modernist piece by Navajo Artist Chester J. Nez – Handcrafted in solid Sterling Silver with a geometric look that has an organic appeal at the same time. The top is asymmetrical with a wave of silver off to one side and a large, genuine Turquoise gemstone set opposite the wave. He sides are flat; it almost reminds me of a flowing wave that has been preserved and sliced. The beautiful oval, cabochon Turquoise gemstone is bright Robin’s Egg Blue with a touch of copper matrix. It measures just under ½” (11 mm) by just under 3/8” (9 mm). It is bezel set in gleaming silver and is raised above the surface are on a silver post. The top of the cuff measures 2” by 5/8” and sits 7/8” at the tallest part. The wide band is rigid and sculpted to fit the wrist comfortably. big and bold design.

The back is Hallmarked “STERLING” and bears the Artist’s Signature, “C/J NEZ” for Chester J. Nez. This piece is truly more than a bracelet, it is a fabulous example of Native American Wearable Art!
