Remarks & our Opinion - This is a lightweight cuff and is easily adjustable. Cuff is more oval than round and has markings on both sides. Marked SM at end of cuff. Dating - earliest would be 1950's. We do a few basic tests to check if it is fake. Hit against teeth for sound. Use acetone to see if matrix washes off.
If any of these checks are negative then we will let it be known in our description. If this is a polished cabochon we also assume it is stabilized turquoise.We do not know if it is low / high grade turquoise because the tests are destructive in nature and could damage the turquoise. Our opinion's made about the jewelry we sell is so we can be as correct and honest about our description as we can. Native American Stamp & Hallmark Info -There are no exact dates when "Sterling" was first used on Native American jewelry. Opinions vary but is suggested after 1932. Most Native American items from 1930's and before would not have a Sterling or 925 stamp or a Artist hallmark.
There are exceptions to this. Some items made in the 1940's-1950's may have used the Sterling stamp.
In general the Sterling and or "925" stamp with a artist hallmark since the 1950's was and is still used today.
