turquoise and 2 coral cabochons.
A cabochon is a gemstone that has been smoothly shaped and polished as opposed
to being cut with flat facets. This usually results in a stone with a rounded
convex top and flat bottom. Opaque gems, such as turquoise are often cut as cabochons,
while transparent stones such as diamonds are facetted.
When we sell a vintage watch cuff, we sell
it in the condition it was when we received it. The quartz timepiece shown came
with this cuff and will stay with it. Some of our customers purchase these watch
cuffs for their collections, others to wear, so we leave everything AS-IS and
let you decide.
If you want to replace the timepiece
or put a new battery in the timepiece but your local jeweler is not familiar with
Native American jewelry, you can find contact
information here for an excellent shop that we use for all of our jewelry
repairs. After purchase from us, you can send the watch to them for a new timepiece
or battery, resizing, or a face lift - anything from a light cleaning to a full
polishing. - Paula
We leave the natural patina on our
pawn jewelry because many of our customers like the old "vintage" appearance.
