Vintage Fred Harvey Era Navajo Green Turquoise Pretty Girl Sterling Silver Bracelet. This cuff appears to be a fine example of the Pretty Girl bracelet, that is, a combination of hand-made elements some cast and applied, and others imprinted on the platform created by the shank. It is a Fred Harvey era piece and predates the custom of signing and designation of silver content. An applied silver motif complements the green turquoise cabochon which may be Pilot Mountain. A variety of arrows dominates the side decorations and each type has its own meaning: crossed arrow, friendship; straight arrow, protection; and the arrowhead, alertness.
Split shank has four branches which support the 18 mm x 26 mm cabochon which is secured in a bezel cup. The wrap of the bracelet is 5 ¼ inches with a one-inch opening; the distance between the splits in the shank is about 3/8 inch; the width of the widest part of the shank which supports the bezel is one inch. It does not show signs of extensive wear.For an open cuff, this bracelet is free of bend marks from having been fitted/sized to wrists. They are a vital part of the description.
