This beauty is inlaid with composite red jasper stone. This is an incredible vintage tribal cuff bracelet. It is created from mixed metals in a silver tone. This piece has great detail work from the patterned texture and twisted wire accents. This has a darkened patina to show off the pattern. The two round stones are centerpiece of this and highlighted by coordinating tear drop inlay on each side. This is 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!

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.
