Vintage Southwestern Cuff Bracelet Junk Drawer Lot, Sterling & Some Turquoise:
Up for sale - a "junk drawer lot" of sterling bracelets -- 6 cuffs, 1 link, and 1 bangle. Of those, 4 are stamped 925 and 4 are not. However, I have been doing this long enough to know that they are all sterling. All will fit an average woman's wrist. The whole lot weighs 87 grams.
Photo 1 (on wrist) are those which are not stamped sterling.-- the heart is a cuff, approx. circumf. is 6 3/8" + 1 1/4" gap, 6 grams.--the 1st turquoise cuff has one chipped stone, is stamped BK Spencer and NIHMSS (don't know what that means-- I've got a thread started over on the discussion board if you have any info, or just email me here). No stamping on the sides. Circum. is approx. 6" around with a 1" gap, 12 grams. --the 2nd turquoise cuff is missing two little stones. Nice hand stamping on the sides, 8 grams--the plain silver bangle is in excellent condition, circumf. is approx. 5 3/4" + 1 1/4" gap, 6 grams
*****This just in: those knowing experts on the board have revealed the mystery of NIHMSS. It means Navajo Indian Hand Made Sterling Silver. This stamp would have been/is used on jewelry sold at the trading posts. Different posts used different stamps.So 5, not 4, of these bracelets are marked sterling.*****
Photo 2 (on wrist) are those which are stamped 925
--the unicorn and heart bracelet is a cuff, slightly out of round. Also about 6" around with a 1 1/4" gap. Stamped sterling with a maker's mark: SC 10 grams--the tri-colored cuff is very old, stamped "ster" These are not stones, but some sort of resin. Possibly very old, faded block turquoise, coral, and shell? 11 grams--the knot bracelet is abangle. Stamped sterling, handmade, a little out of round - but not too much. Approx. 7" around. 4 grams--the link bracelet is stamped 925 and Mexico. Heavier than the wrest -- 27 grams.
Altogether, the lot is 87 grams.
