From a long forgotten box in my office closet and a Tucson estate twenty years ago is this 1940's or so Navajo silver bracelet, an attractively wrought beauty with a nicely hued 31.5x24mm tiger eye centerpiece and confident prepared stamp decor. The metal is rolled ingot, and there are arrow stamps serving as an indicator of age.The ornament is in fact from the so called Fred Harvey era when much Southwestern jewelry was crafted in more wearable formats for visitors - there is the desired aesthetic of that time and every bit of "the look" you want. You see these old timers with turquoise, not so much with tiger eye. An early use of an older style "STERLING" marking looks pretty much like the ones on WW2 AAF pilot wings. Weight is good for the form at about 36.5 grams on my portable digital scale. Condition is quite fine with a nice aura of time to the silver.
I have avoided every urge to refresh or "improve" those naturally patinated surfaces - you want that done, you do it. The chatoyant tiger eye is very well preserved and shows lovely coloration. Typical and expected (and in that sense desired) signs of previous wrist duty simply validate the history.
I'm nitpicking for the obsessive here, and a look at the pics should give a good idea of appearance and condition - a classic ornament that will look great worn about in Santa Fe or wherever you live. Inner circumference is about 5 3/8 in. Plus the 1 1/2 in. Vertical at the front - so yes, it will be noticed.
If you prefer historic Southwestern adornment over that stuff at the mall, or simply wish a single noticeable improvement to the ambiance of each day, this will have great meaning for you.
