Sterling Cuff Bracelet with Red Coral

8630: This beautiful dead pawn bracelet is an amazing work of Native American art. The eye-catching cuff bracelet has ten bright red coral stones. The coral stones measure 1/4 x 1/8 and are separated by beautiful silver raindrops. The rose red coral stones stand out beautifully against the shinny silver band. The detailed silver band is stamped with sunburst and other Native American designs. This cuff bracelet measures 3/4" across at the center and is stamped sterling. The bracelet, which can be stretched or squeezed a bit for fitting, has an inside circumference of 6 1/4" including the 1 " opening. It is from dead pawn from the Gallup area. For the Southwestern Native American, pawn refers to the practice of converting artwork and possessions into income for life's necessities. Pawn can also be items from antiquity, heirloom pieces of handmade jewelry or craft, passed from a family into the public marketplace. Because much of the pawned merchandise is of real day-to-day value in the seller's life, the percentage of pawn that goes unredeemed is small, about five percent. Merchandise that remains for sale after expiration is referred to as "dead pawn", and items of dead pawn are among the most highly valued Native American artifacts to be found on the open market. Price: $72.50
