Pair these beautiful turquoise stone bracelets with your favorite turquoise jewelry. These are Dolomite stone, not genuine turquoise, but they are fabulous.
The bangle bracelet is one of the oldest forms of jewelry that has ever been discovered, having played a significant role in many ancient cultures. This matching pair of stone bangles were carved from large specimens of dolomite stone. They have been dyed to emulate Persian turquoise and their rich turquoise hue is stunning. They look and feel so rich on the wrist. You will love the weight and their sexy glide along the wrist.
These bangles are a thick design with a width of about 10mm (10-10.5mm). Each bangle is a solid span of stone, not multiple sections patched together. Exterior diameter measures 3-1/4 inches across and the interior diameter measures 2-1/2 inches. The internal circumference measures approximately 7-1/2 inches. One bracelet weighs 38.8 grams and the other 37.9 grams. Of course, these bracelets look great worn together but they are also fun to mix and match with other bangles.
With slight matrix and a hand polished sheen, the stone is not sealed with a high gloss polymer and thus closely resembles the softly polished natural sheen of genuine turquoise. Actual hue is a brilliant turquoise with muted black matrix. We had these bracelets analyzed by GIA NYC computerized testing and they have been classified as dolomite, dyed and impregnated. We will include the original GIA ID report, original cost of $200.
These stone beauties are a genuine treat that can easily mix and match with a variety of turquoise jewelry. Rarely will you find solid bangles crafted from this stone. Due to the formation process of turquoise, veins large enough for a bracelet would be extremely rare and valued at many thousands of dollars.
Dolomite is a large stone that was first discovered and mined in the mountain range of Northeastern Italy named The Dolomites. This stone was first discovered in the 18th century and classified as a rock by the French geologist de Dolomeiu. It was later named in his honor as well as the mountain range of its origin.
Considered a powerful stone, dolomite is thought to bring balance, calm and healing to one's life. It is believed that dolomite stimulates the metabolism of calcium and magnesium and has been thought to aid in the treatment of osteoporosis, the healing of broken bones and promotion of good sleep. It was even once gifted to new parents to promote inner calm during the overwhelming process of birth and newborn care.
