Overview & Details

Chaco Canyon Southwest Zuni Needlepoint Turquoise Sterling Silver Cuff Bracelet
"Just what is needlepoint turquoise?" you ask. Well, it's not what you might think. It's actually a style of jewelry created by members of the Zuni tribe in the early 20th century. That's when they started cutting turquoise into needle-shaped stones and using it to create delicate jewelry designs. This beautiful bracelet, handcrafted by modern Zuni artists, features clear-blue Sleeping Beauty turquoise cut and fashioned using this traditional technique.

Design Information
  • Sterling silver, open-wire cuff bracelet has oval center station between 2 curved, rectangular side stations
  • Oval center station has elongated, marquise-shaped blue turquoise on black base at center
  • Thin, rectangular "needles" of blue turquoise radiate from center of oval station
  • Blue turquoise "needles" stack on black bases of side stations
  • Rope texture and silver beaded accents
  • Cuff base tapers 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.

  • 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.


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