This is a sterling silver cuff bracelet with a hammered finish and solid 18k gold setting and details. It features a beautiful piece of green and blue Carico Lake turquoise as well as lots of gold decoration and detail.
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 with a classic apple-green color.
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. 1 1/2″ wide (top to bottom) and just over 2mm thick. It is a rich and heavier weight piece with a total weight of over 158 grams including nearly 15 grams of gold.
