How to Choose and Fit a Cuff Bracelet
NOS Vintage Sterling Silver
Paula says - "You are buying a sterling silver watch cuff bracelet with eight turquoise stones. We include at no extra charge the quartz timepiece that was with the cuff when we bought it. The timepiece is neither sterling silver nor Native American made. It is included with the cuff as a convenience so you can wear the watch cuff right away. It may or may not need a new battery. Sold AS IS.
"This cuff is 'NOS', which means New Old Stock. It was made in the 1970s but has never been used.

Turquoise comes in all shades of blue, to blue-green and it is the natural variations in turquoise that make it appealing. The color of turquoise in American Indian jewelry ranges from brownish green to bright blue. Found in veins sandwiched in between layers of mother rock, turquoise can show some of the influence of the mother rock in its matrix or veining. The matrix colors range from blue to golden brown to black and sometimes with golden flecks. Many people prefer turquoise with matrix over clear stones. Read more about stones.

Why isn't this item called Native American?
The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
