Old Pawn Navajo Tufa Cast Sterling Silver Kingman Turquoise Cuff Bracelet │rs Li

Up for sale is a stunning old pawn Navajo cast sterling silver and Kingman turquoise cuff bracelet.

Tufa casting is a process commonly used by the Native American Silversmiths to produce jewelry, the artisan will first carve in stone the mirror image of the object he wants to cast. Molten silver is then poured into the carved stone and when it cools the piece is removed. Usually only one tufa casting can be made as the fine details in the stone are destroyed when the casting is removed. Tufa casting is the only casting process that produces an original one of a kind.

Old Pawn Native American Jewelry refers to the pieces that were made, worn and treasured as not only adornment, protection of good health, but also as portable wealth. Not having ready access to banks, or cash money, this jewelry would often serve as the family "reserve" or "emergency" fund.

In times of need, this silver and turquoise jewelry could be easily used as security with an authorized trader (pawned) for cash to meet the current crisis. Then, when the crops came in, or the sheep were shorn, the jewelry could be redeemed and take its place back in the family.

Unfortunately on occasions this jewelry would not be redeemed as planned. The lender would keep it for the agreed amount of time, and if the loan was not paid off by the agreed date, the Pawn Shop, or Trader would be authorized to sell the jewelry.

Often, when the elders of the family die, their items are pawned and the money is divided among the family members.

The bracelet's circumference from end to end is5", plus an adjustable opening of1-1/4",is 2-3/16" wide at its widest point and weighs 79.8g.

The setting measures 15/16" by 5/8".

The bracelet has been tested and examined for purity and is sterling silver. In addition, there are no test marks or cosmetic damage on the piece. You will receive the exact bracelet pictured! Thank you for looking and good luck offerding!
