Charles Loloma is the top name in any collection of Native American Indian jewelry!

Sterling silver cuff bracelet by the Master Hopi Indian jeweler, Charles Loloma, 1921-1991. Loloma redefined what Indian jewelry was all about, back in the 1960s.

The 3/4" wide cuff is set with the stones measuring 3/8" at the center to 1/8" at the ends. The interior is 5 1/4" end to end plus the 7/8" gap.
