    Beautiful 5/8" wide 1960's nickel (or sterling, not marked) cuff with crushed turquoise and coral in a wave pattern marked NAKAI. Navajo George Nakai, also refers to Nakai Trading of Native Arts and Crafts per internet research. I think this is nickel because it's strong and not easy to bend. Stilll - very collectible. Thanks for any comments!

      Super gorgeous cuff, that turquoise wave inlay is a magnificent fluid design and love the way the artist put a touch of coral on one side

      Love this bracelet! There are advantages to the nickel silver vs Sterling in that it is stronger, although some can’t wear nickel. I can so it’s great if one finds one that fits well.

      I have a small display case at a local antique gallery with a focus on vintage costume jewelry. Periodically, I’ll put some of my NA pieces in there But good grief...after severe damage to a 6.5” Sterling inlay cuff that was probably “tried on” by an 8” wrist...never again. Thus, another benefit of nickel.

      It is gorgeous. Hope you wear it often!

      Jenni - yes, it's a really beautiful graceful pattern.

      foseatme - thank you for your nice comment.

      highlander56 - yes, it's really great and agree about nickel silver being a strong alternative to sterling and wears well. Sorry to hear about items damaged. Definitely not cool! Yes, I love this cuff. I wear it with other sterling cuffs. thanks for your nice comments!

      Terry - thanks for your comments. Stay warm and safe. We're getting rain soon, but happy if it puts out the latest Santa Barbara fire. Happy Thanksgiving!

      Well now you know I'd be loving this! This crushed inlay design is a Tommy Singer design, but I'm sure you already knew that! It's possible that it was made with nickel silver so it could not be adjusted, many inlay didn't survive because of adjusting... the settings would loosen and fall out, yes? As crazy busy as I have been lately, I have not stopped acquiring! Looks like you've added more pieces to your collection as well!
