Bracelet, Ketoh, Turquoise, Needlepoint, Vintage Mid 20th Century, 2950

Size Guide


The history of the ketoh goes back to Navajo archers and the bands they wore to protect their forearms from the snap of their bowstrings. These stiff leather guards were eventually embellished by silversmiths with conchos, silver buttons, and turquoise stones. They ceased to be functional archery gear and instead became worn as decorative jewelry. Old ketohs are highly sought after by collectors.

Double D Ranch is pleased to offer this beautiful vintage ketoh from the mid-20th century featuring a central panel set with tear drop turquoise petit point turquoise in six columns with flanking side panels and stamped edges all mounted to a newer dark brown leather strap. A stunning and timeless statement piece for your collection.
