This is a 3-stone heavy sterling silver cuff bracelet with solid 18k gold settings and decorative items fused to the cuff. The center stone is natural Carico Lake turquoise. Carico is a rare turquoise mined in Nevada that comes in a variety of colors including shades of green that are unique to this particular mine. This is one of the finest pieces as it displays not only shades of green but is also interlaced with powder blues as well. This mix of colors is completely natural and is found no where else in the world.
The triangular accent stones are gem silica from a mine in Mexico that is no longer producing material. They have a wonderful Carabbean blue color that accent the blue and green of the larger center stone.
The outside of the cuff has an oxidized (black) finish and the inside is polished silver. The bracelet is approx. 1 5/8″ wide and more than 1.5mm thick (see photo with older U.S. dime for size/scale). It is a substantial piece with a heavy, rich feel weighing more than 96 grams including over 19 grams of 18k gold.
Size and Other Considerations: This is a 6 3/8″ cuff with a 1 1/16″ gap (6 3/8″ overall inside circumference). Buyers should see Sizing for information on how to measure your wrist for cuff bracelets such as this.
Care of This Piece: The outside of the cuff has an oxidized finish on it. Care should be taken when cleaning it not to use chemicals including polishing cloths that are impregnated with chemical cleaner as it will remove this oxidized finish.
