Details of Style & or Stones(s):
This is one unique and interesting bracelet! Beautiful and very rare type of turquoise called Mastrada Turquoise. This type of turquoise was produced and mined in a very minimal capacity because it was found in Vein form most of the time. The beautiful colors light blue green almost white colors mixed with black spiderweb matrix. This is a very HARD type of turquoise, and a very very rare type of turquoise to befound. The turquoise includes natural fracturing from before the stone was cut, this is found in all turquoise. Beautiful and elegant silver work, completely hand fabricated by a master Navajo Silversmith. The silver work includes hand stamp work on the sides, over time this has started to wear a bit. Along with large granulated silver bead work along the topside of the bracelet and a classic Navajo Indian rope twist bezel. Very beautiful Navajo silver work! Please don't hesitate on making this bracelet yours, i doubt you'll see this form of turquoise again, it never ever pops up for sale!Overall, this piecehas a nice patina. This may come off if one desires but this is being sold as is. The bracelet is in great shape and has lovely design work! Native American jewelry unfortunately is being melted by the tons as the price of silver goes higher. This ring is already unique, pretty soon it will be even rarer due to its age and condition!
Markings: The bracelet is stamped 925, however has also been tested and guaranteed as such. Please read below as how we test all of our items in a non-harmful way with our XRF-Spectrometer gun.
Summary:This is a beautiful and antique Native American item! Immaculate silver work. If you were to buy a new sterling silver item such as this that is not near this quality from a shop or store one would spend more money! Again, Native American jewelry is disappearing often and fast! Not much more out there due from melting, broken, destroyed or simply lost with time. It is getting increasingly harder to find quality items that have stood the test of time. Perfect for a collector, and not to mention it will gain in monetary value over the years! Please don't hesitate to offer on this beautiful one of a kind item. You may never see one quite like it again!

About Us: We are two young professionals "Alexis" & "Chris". We met in a photography class in college. We both go to college and sell New, Vintage, & Antique jewelry on as a full time job. We are not your typical college aged kids, we know the value of a dollar and what customer service truly means, we will always go out of our way to make our customers as happy as possible. We started out in the jewelry business knowing individuals who were in the smelting business. As we watched these smelters melting new, vintage, & antique 100+ year old jewelry for the metal value, we cringed!! We thought, there must be a way to save this special and once in a lifetime type of jewelry instead of melting these wonderful items. Well then the bright idea of selling these beautiful items smacked us in the face! We started buying small items such as rings, bracelets and necklaces from these smelters and selling these items to wonderful people who would appreciate them and cherish them for a lifetime!
After starting out small time, we started to go to Antique shops, estate sales, estate buy outs, smelters, sales, coin shows, or just about anywhere possible we could get our hands on these wonderful and beautiful jewelry items! We started to set up at trade shows and other events to sell to people, we love the interaction with people! To work more with our school schedule we eventually phased out the trade show atmosphere and started selling jewelry on ! I'm glad we did, you can get just as much interaction with people over the internet as you can face to face. We love all of our customers and love the quick messages anybody likes to send our way! After starting to sell jewelry on we started our business called Aumia Gold & Silver Jewelry And Collectibles LLC, "Aumia" Is Golden Lady in Latin. We try to offer a variety of jewelry from Rings, Necklaces, Pendants, Brooch's, Gold & Silver. We also offer Native American Jewelry, Art Deco Jewelry, Victorian Jewelry, Antique Chinese Jewelry and much much more! We try to post a mix of each variety every day Mon-Fri.
We found our niche! The success on has made this into our full time job. Because of our great loyal customers and new ones every day you are helping us provide an education in Genetics, Biology and soon to be business. We also donate large amounts of money to Rotary. We both heavily believe in helping others and creating wonderful new opportunities internationally and domestically. Aumia has provided us our future and love towards our passion. We can’t see ourselves doing anything else. It is something new every day. I combine my hobby of photography, and meeting new people. We treat people with the utmost respect and customer service is our main priority. There are always goofy stories about us but too much for an listing. We hope we have given you some insight to who we are and our passion for this industry. Check our page for more fun information!
