This old Mexican sterling silver cuff bracelet has had a place of honor in my jewelry box for decades. Having never seen one like it, I had to keep it for the occasional 'flaunt-your-bracelet' night out. Time for a new home and more nights out.
This cuff is made of solid sterling silver with an aged patina that's starting to match the dark oxidized silver background. That charcoal gray silver is the perfect backdrop for the applied bezels filled with branch red coral and two beautiful cabs of genuine old mine turquoise. Some curving feathers and raised silver beads complete the handmade design. It's simple, beautiful, almost primitive.
The cuff has split ~V~ bands at sides. It measures about 7 inches around with opening. The great flattop plaque measures 2 1/2 inches across by 1 3/4 inches wide. It's perfectly and securely balanced onto the band. The bracelet weighs 42 grams. The back is stamped STERLING MEXICO. There's the outline of an eagle mark with no legible inner mark. Based on the markings, we believe this is circa 1950s.
The cuff has never been polished (while in our possession). It's in excellent vintage condition.
