A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art

  A good friend of mine found this exquisite silver colored metal bracelet in a thrift store being sold very inexpensively.  I've collected many types of vintage Sterling Silver necklaces, rings and bracelets over the years and most all of them at a minimum have the words Sterling or "925" which give evidence that they are truly Sterling Silver.  This one has only the maker's mark "JM" which I believe indicates that it was made by the Navajo artisan James Mason.  I found only a few other Silver bracelets made by this artist and am now curious whether this is indeed Sterling and if so why it wasn't marked as such.  I purchased this from my friend and will likely not sell it but would be interested to learn whether this is indeed Sterling Silver.  I paid her 4 times the amount that she paid for this to reward her for her kindness in parting with it.

As you might be able to see this cuff has a wealth of detail in the many designs which the artist included on it.  I also love the color of the turquoise and I was lucky that my friend had found this at that estate sale.  I've basically stopped going to thrift stores and when I do go am much more picky about what I purchase.
