Cuff, Cluster, Turquoise, Vintage, 2431
The lapidary work found in Zuni and Navajo cluster work is an extremely laborious process due to the time and skill required by the artisan to hand-cut each gemstone.
This early cluster cuff is crafted in the traditional radial design but is unique because it features both teardrop and triangular-shaped stones - forty-six in all and all hand cut. Collected in New Mexico, this authentic old pawn displays the original pawn code inscribed on the backside. It will be an heirloom for generations and a joy to wear.
