My husband and I have spent many years traveling the U.S. in search of nice old vintage items for our collections and now to offer for sale. We recently bought the inventory of an Arizona Trading Post that went out of business in 1988. I will be listing beautiful, vintage .925 sterling silver Native American jewelry. Some of the items are Navajo some are from the Zuni tribe and a bit of Hopi too. Some of the items are older and date back to the 1960’s. All stones are genuine and I will include the name of the stone, and if turquoise to the best of my ability, I will name the mine it came from. All items are handmade and I will photograph any signatures of the artists. All items are clean and ready to wear or give as a gift.
The item I offer today is a pair of vintage 1970’s Navajo handmade watch tips. They are made of sterling silver and are large owls with turquoise eyes. The turquoise looks to be from the Kingman mine in Arizona. There is no mark but remember older pieces were seldom signed. The two owls have a slight curve to cup your wrist.
They are installed onto and include a vintage band. The band is the kind you can’t find anymore….it is U.S.A. made and is the old twist o flex style in stainless steel. All you need to do is add your favorite watch. The stretchy band measures 2 ½” long and when you add the length of the tips the total length is 5 ½”. Remember to add the length of your watch to see if it will fit your wrist. In order for this band to fit your watch….your watch needs to measure no less than 7/16” where the pins go to attach the watch to the tips. Links can be removed from the band by a jeweler if it is too long.
