This beauty is inlaid with two huge red jasper composite stones. This is an incredible vintage tribal bracelet. This piece has great detail work from the patterned texture, twisted wire accents and mixed metal of silver and brass. The two stones are the centerpiece of this and highlighted by the rounded points on the top and bottom of the bracelet. It is accented by more inlaid stone on each side. Nice and wide in the front but tapers to the back so that it is more comfortable to wear. Let your bohemian style fly free with this beauty!
As with many of my Middle Eastern cuffs, I have a matched set of these. If you are interested in one for each wrist, please check out the other listing.
Please keep in mind that most Kuchi and Turkoman / Turkmen / Turkomen items are old and used items with a distinct aged patina. They are a nomadic Afghan people who have created amazing jewelry for centuries. Their colorful jewelry combines new, old, metal, beads, coins, stones and fabric. Many pieces are worn due to being used from every day wear, tribal celebrations, belly dance and wedding uses. They are made with a coin-base metal alloy.

I do not polish my vintage jewelry and silver as some people like the aged patina. I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
