Heavy Old Pawn Navajo Sterling Silver & Morenci Turquoise Cuff Bracelet │ec Ai For Sale

Heavy Old Pawn Navajo Sterling Silver & Morenci Turquoise Cuff Bracelet │ec Ai

Up for sale is beautiful old pawn Navajo sterling silver and high grade Morenci turquoise cuff bracelet.

Old Pawn Native American Jewelry refers to the pieces that were made, worn and treasured as not only adornment, protection of good health, but also as portable wealth. Not having ready access to banks, or cash money, this jewelry would often serve as the family "reserve" or "emergency" fund.

In times of need, this silver and turquoise jewelry could be easily used as security with an authorized trader (pawned) for cash to meet the current crisis. Then, when the crops came in, or the sheep were shorn, the jewelry could be redeemed and take its place back in the family.

Unfortunately on occasions this jewelry would not be redeemed as planned. The lender would keep it for the agreed amount of time, and if the loan was not paid off by the agreed date, the Pawn Shop, or Trader would be authorized to sell the jewelry.

Often, when the elders of the family die, their items are pawned and the money is divided among the family members.

Morenci Turquoise is mined in southwestern Arizona, is often associated with an unusual black matrix of irregular iron pyrite, which looks metallic when polished. Although they are rare, stones with unusual birds-eye patterns, red matrix and an occasional layer of silver have also been found. Morenci is well known; it was one of the first types of American turquoise to find its way to the market and is always difficult to obtain because the mine was depleted so long ago.

It is believed that the best Morenci ever produced was discovered in the late 1960's to early 70's. During this time period, the mine produced a high, electric blue variety with iron pyrite inclusions. Since Morenci is no longer being mined, and because of its striking color and unusual matrix combinations, high grade natural Morenci is a valuable, highly collectible style="font-weight: bold; ">

The bracelet has an end to end inner circumference of5-3/4", plus an adjustable opening of 1-1/4",is 1-3/4" wide at its widest point and weighs 76g.

The setting measures 1" long and 15/16" wide.

The bracelet has been tested and examined for purity and is sterling silver. In addition, there are no test marks or cosmetic damage on the piece.
