Ladies Large Sterling Bracelet Navajo Style Old Pawn Lapis, M-12 For Sale
While most sellers only sell as dealers. I am a silver/gold smith and jewelry gem stone cutter and manufacturer of 38 years. I have been dealing and trading in silver and gemstones my whole adult life and have the knowledge and expertise to evaluate each piece of jewelry. I look over each piece and ultrasonically clean and sterilize before I even start. I replace all parts that are not up to new standards. I look at all components and make sure everything is adjusted correctly and is in new condition when done. Polishing is the final step and then sealed in a plastic bag away from moisture and humidity. I am in a smoke free environment and because each piece is sterilized and cleaned and polished this removes all traces of former environments and the piece is in as new condition. While I do my best to identify the maker and origin of every piece, There are to many artists and makers in the world to know all of them. But I do know stone and jewelry fabrication and can evaluate the piece for what it is and what it needs.
Some of these old pieces are hallmarked, but most are not. But in this day I have seen to many phony pieces that are hallmarked and are only plated. I acid test every thing as I do not trust hallmarks any more. People and hallmarks lie but acid does not.!!!!
!!!! I acid test every thing before I sell it. My word and guarantee are my hallmark. Buy with confidence from a silver smith with over 38 years experience and on for over a decade !!!!!!!
I have reformed theitem to the original shape. I have tightened the stone setting to make sure the stone will not fall out. I have left the original patina on it. I have kept or left it as original as I can without selling junk that will break. I do not sell old beat up junk with the stone ready to fall out or break in two because of a crack in the silver
