Silver Bengal with Turquoise Unknown Hallmark?

Postby krtkendra » Sun Dec 30, 2012 2:48 am

I received this from my great grandmother a few years back and was told it was real silver and real turquoise. I have heard that really old pieces weren't marked with the amount of silver, or if they were made by a smaller company they didn't always do the correct markings. The only thing I can really see is this fancy B looking hallmark which I wasn't able to find in the photo guides, does anyone know anything about this, does it seem real? Any more information is appreciated. Thanks!

Sorry in advance, I am not familiar with posting photos, here is a link the album if you couldn't get them to work.

Bangles are solid round/oval bracelets, this is a cuff.
It's most likely Native American/Navajo but I didn't find the mark in my books.
It's highly likely sterling or at least coin/900 silver but would have to be tested to be sure.
