This is a sterling silver cuff bracelet with a hammered finish and solid 18k gold setting. It features a beautiful piece of green and blue 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 also has a touch of powder blue as well. This mix of colors is completely natural and is found no where else in the world.
It is a high-domed cabochon so the stone is exposed well above the bezel for a rich look and feel. This gemstone is completely natural (not stabilized or dyed).
The outside of the cuff has an oxidized (black) finish and the inside is polished silver. The bracelet is approx. 3/4″ wide (top to bottom) and just over 2mm thick. It is a medium-to-light weight piece that would be easy for any woman to wear. Total weight of this item is a little over 65 grams.
