Navajo Bracelet 14k Gold Diamond Turquoise Coral Native American Ervin Hoskie Q
WELCOME to High Desert Turquoise!
If you love both Native American jewelry and gold jewelry then you already know that it's difficult to find and often very expensive because the very high cost of gold. Few artisans can afford to buy it and few are confident enough to make hand made gold jewelry.
But I have some less pricey gold pieces in my store as well as some show stoppers that are nothing short of spectacular! Check them out. This is one of the showstoppers, and it was created by a renowned and extremely talented Navajo gold and silversmith, Ervin Hoskie. It features what I estimate to be a quarter carat genuine diamond (I can't know for sure without removing it and that's not practical or desirable.) and three amazing cobblestone and channel inlays of hand engraved Sleeping Beauty turquoise, genuine red Mediterranean coral (this is the very expensive coral!), cobalt blue lapis, white mother of pearl, and black jet.
If you look carefully at the photos, you'll see the diamond is mounted as the mouth of a raised, hand engraved Corn Maiden who's wearing a golden squash blossom necklace and one jacla style earring we can see, and has a stunning hand engraved cobblestone turquoise and coral inlaid costume framed on one side with a series of six overlaid golden Monument Valley rock formation designs. The polished surfaces you see 14kt gold gold overlay created from one sheet of gold and then bonded to the bracelet which the artist reticulated (textured) to create contrast and enhance the bracelet's appearance.
One edge along both shanks feature golden stair stepped mountains, running water, storm, and stair stepped pueblo dwelling designs. The two largest inlay channels on the shanks represent dawn and dusk sky colors, white clouds, blue sky, approaching night, and black and white Milky Way designs.This fabulous slightly domed golden one of a kindcuffbracelet is 9/16ths" wide from terminal to terminal. It has an inside measurement of 5¼" with a an absolutely non adjustable opening gap of 1" making it suitable for wrists that are 6¼"or slightly lessin circumference.
Literally a collector and museum quality bracelet for any time of the day...or night!
Famous artist Ervin Hoskie's hallmark and 14K stamp are on the back. A second Navajo artist whose engraved hallmark I don't recognize (W.M. Jr.) is also on the back of the bracelet.
