This is a very gorgeous bracelet that would make a great gift! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Ralph Bia, out of genuine sterling silver. Imprinted traditonal patterns and bear paw designs add style to the cuff for an outstanding finish. In Native American beliefs, the bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength. The bracelet is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
Sterling Silver is a metal, which consists of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper. Although any metal can make up the 7.5% of non-silver component, years of study have shown that copper is most compatible, while aiding the solidity and durability of the metal without harming its beautiful color. The small amount of 7.5% copper added to all silver has almost no effect on the metals overall value. Due to the durability of sterling silver it is not only used for jewelry, but household accessories as well. Silver is known to last a lifetime with the proper care.
