A prized bracelet acquired from San Diego auction in early 90's. Pictures are a little light. Turquoise true rather than blue.

The turquoise, gold and browns in these stones are very pretty. Middle stone has a crack - I bought it that way. Back is marked HH Sterling. It's one of my favorite bracelets.

Thank you Vintagejewel asking about Manassa turquoise on my other green Navajo post. I believe this is from King's Manassa Mine, Colorado. Would appreciate any comments and corrections. Thanks!

    Love the color and matrix on these stones! This could be King Manassa mine or I was thinking maybe even Royston. I love how American Turquoise has different mines and to me its fun to try and figure out. Keep on collecting and even the tourist era turquoise jewelry is increasing in value and becoming more and more collectible.

    Thank you vintagejewel - I agree - keep collecting. Hmm, I have to look up Royston. It is fun to figure it out - based on where you bought your item or if you know where the craftsman was from. I LOVE my turquoise collection. Some day I'll own a Charles Loloma Hopi bracelet. I have more to post and thanks for your comments!
