Overview & Details

Chaco Canyon Sleeping Beauty Turquoise "Star" Sterling Silver Cuff Bracelet
Early in the 20th Century Zuni silversmiths began cutting turquoise into needle-shaped stones and using it to create a variety of jewelry designs. They called the pieces "needlepoint" turquoise and the style remains popular today. This handcrafted piece is a beautiful example of that Native American design. Big and bold, it's the perfect complement to your chic, Southwestern-inspired style!

Design Information
  • Sterling silver cuff bracelet has large, round station at center with round and elongated oval turquoise cabochons and rope-textured silver forming flower- or star-like pattern
  • Outward radiating needlepoint turquoise cabochons line edge of circular station
  • Split shoulders adorned with round and needlepoint turquoise accents with rope-textured frames
  • Round and star-shaped silver bead accents
  • Shoulders and sides taper to ends

Good to Know
  • Moisture, skin oils and environmental factors can change the color of turquoise jewelry if left untreated. But stabilizing turquoise helps preserve the stone's normal color. Natural, mined turquoise nuggets are heated at a very low temperature for about a week, slowly drawing out moisture without damaging the texture. The stones are then placed into acrylic or polymer chemicals to replace water molecules. This stabilizes the stone and keeps its beauty and value intact.

  • Gemstones and pearls are sometimes treated to enhance their natural beauty. To learn more and find out about care instructions see details.

 

  • Due to the composition and natural properties of mined gemstones, the product image may show slight differences to the actual stone in color saturation, tone, hue or other gemstone characteristics such as phenomena, color banding and color matrix.
