This is a sterling silver cuff bracelet with solid 18k gold setting and decorative items fused to the cuff. It is a contemporary style bracelet but I’ve incorporated the crossed cannons symbol from the height of the Spanish Empire. This symbol adorned many items but is probably most known for its incorporation into the royal crest which was stamped on coinage from this period.
The gemstone is an incredible piece of top-grade gel sugilite. It has beautiful saturated purple color and is a high-domed cut that gives the piece a rich look and feel. The first four photos were taken indoors under incandescent studio lights which tend to make the stone look a little more red than it is in natural light. The last photo was taken outdoors under sunlight which shows the rich purple color of the stone.
The bracelet is approx. 1″ wide at the front (measured top to bottom) but tapers slightly towards the gap and is approx. 2 mm thick. It is a medium-to-heavy weight piece piece but would be easy for any woman to wear. Total weight of this item is just over 78 grams.

Size and Other Considerations: This is a 7 1/4″ cuff including a 1 1/8″ gap or opening (7 1/4″ overall). For most women this would be considered a larger size. Buyers should see Sizing for information on how to measure your wrist for cuff bracelets such as this.
