For your consideration is an ANTIQUE STERLING SILVER and turquoise hand crafted heavy cuff bracelet. This bracelet makes a beautiful set with the antique sterling and turquoise collar necklace I have up for auction. It is over 100 years old. It has been in my family for several generations. This is an extremely heavy bracelet weighing 137 grams so it makes not only a gorgeous piece of jewelry but it can be used as a weapon (joking).
There are tiny Persian turquoise on two different rows and covering the closure and pinhead. The outside of the bracelet is covered in wonderful intricate details. There is not a section that is not worked. Only the inside is smooth.
The cuff has a beautiful closure with a pin that is pulled up to "unlock" the bracelet or pushed in to secure it close. It closes snugly and stays locked. A very secure closure! All turquoise is present and in wonderful shades of blue and green. It is quite a statement piece!
It measures approximately 7.75 inches on the inside when closed. It is a little over 1.25 inches wide on the bracelet section and 1.5 inches wide at the lock. As stated above it weighs 137 grams. The bracelet is not stamped but it was tested by a professional certified jeweler and it is 100% sterling. This is a handcrafted piece and a one of a kind!
It is in fantastic antique condition with no missing stones. There are some minor scratches on the inside of the bracelet but it is an antique so I would not expect it to look all shiny and brand new. The only issue is this bracelet needs a good cleaning. There is decades of dirt on this bracelet. In the pictures it may look like rust but it is NOT. It is just the dirt from years of wear. Honestly when looking at it with my naked eye it looks great! It's when I inspect it with my loupe that I see the dirt. I have decided not to clean it because I know some people prefer to have their silver in the original state. The only cleaning this bracelet has received is a gentle buffing with a soft cloth every so often. My home has always been a non-smoking home. If you have ANY questions or want additional pictures, please email me through Ruby Lane.
