Sterling silver and man made Blue Opal.
The inner bracelet circumference measures approximately 5-1/4", plus a 7/8" opening, and 1-1/8" at widest point.
This is a very exquisite barcelet that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Clem Nalwood, out of genuine sterling silver and a man made Blue Opal stone. The stone is delicately set in a hand cut bezel, while hand crafted silver work, stamped patterns, and mini silver beads can be seen accenting the bracelet for a gorgeous finish. The bracelet is stamped sterling, Navajo, and hallmarked.
Most people know Opal for its distinctive play of color, it is a semi-transparent solidified mineral composed of silicon and water, and it gets its name from the Latin word "Oplus" meaning precious stone. Opal is the birthstone for October. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens psychic and mystical qualities.
