It's hard not to get into a 'rave mode' with a bracelet like this. We know it's something we'll never see again. One-of-a-kind. Handmade. Old. Heavy. Amazing. Beautiful. (Oops...it's hard not to rave over this one.)
This bracelet is made of solid sterling silver (acid-tested). It's heavy at 91.9 grams. No markings. Our best guess is that this is an ethnic piece that was hand made by an incredible crafts person who took their time bending thick silver wires, both smooth and herringbone textured, into a wave of thick cable. And that was just for starters. Then there were the decorative ends to create. They cap off the twisting wire work with shields of repousse floral designs. The flowers are framed in a border of raised silver bead work.
The bracelet measures 6 1/2 inches end to end silver. The opening is 3/4 inch. Total is 7 1/4 inches around. There's enough 'flex' in the cable band to allow a struggle-free on and off. And here's the kicker...you can wear this cuff cables side up or open ends side up. There's beauty on every side of this.
We have not polished this bracelet though someone had because we had to brush off some residual silver polish that had been left. There's still enough patina to show the age and artistry and we leave any further polishing to buyer. One more little rave...WOW!
