Fine early Horace Iule sterling silver cast cross is set with 7 hand-cut and polished turquoise gems. The stones are well matched, sky blue and original to the cross. The 2nd stone down from the top has an interesting silver pyrite matrix which makes the stone appear as a heart. I do not know if this symbolism was intentional but it's hard to imagine otherwise. The cross is offered on it's original, silver chain, each link of which was hand-soldered...

This is a very large and fine bracelet by Joe Chee ( hallmarked by the artist )Marc Chee's brother. Probably made during the second world war ( WW II ) since it had a huge piece of petrified wood ( looks like agate or jasper but almost certainly petrified wood ) which was used extensively during that time. The stone is about 2 1/8" by 1 1/8". Bracelet measures 5 3/4" circumference PLUS a 1 1/2" gap so will fit a 7 1/4" to 7 3/4" wrist, could be carefully adjusted...

Southwestern jewelry is outside my specialization and frankly I'm a bit tired of it, after living in New Mexico for so many years. However, I can still be impressed now and then by a piece from the neighborhood (Rio Grande pueblo country).

This necklace is one of those pieces. It dates from the 1970s, when overall quality really was better. Wonderful work continues to be done, of course, but mainly at the upper end of the market...

Most harem rings are decidedly in the "fine jewelry" category -- made of high-carat gold and set with gemstones -- so it's quite unusual to find an affordable version. We got lucky and found two of them lately: a seven-ring stack of textured sterling bands and this beauty!

Here, diamond rhinestones not only ornament each of five bands joined at the back, but also fit together to form a lovely flower. The metal is silver in color, unmarked, and the faceted rhinestones are real dazzlers...
