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 a beautiful piece of top-grade Australian variscite. Variscite is a cousin to turquoise in the mineral world and is in fact the same basic mineral but it does not contain copper which gives turquoise its blue color. This piece has deeper green color with spider webbing of tan or buff colored matrix which gives it more character and interest.
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 73 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.
