Turquoise Jewelry is honored to present this investment quality turquoise cuff by the famous Navajo silversmith, Kirk Smith.
Kirk’s work is characterized by his use of quality stones and materials and this piece exemplifies that quality. Comprised of three large rectangular turquoise cabochons, Kirk frames them with thirty-eight matching turquoise stones. Meticulously handcrafted, the cuff features a gently tapered five-split shank of Sterling silver.
This one-of-a-kind piece is for the serious collector and lover of Native American craft.
Made in the USA
