The Caldera Collection: Hubei Turquoise Cuff with Sterling Silver & 14k Gold
Handcrafted ring of reclaimed sterling silver and solid 14k yellow gold.
Featured stone: Natural Hubei turquoise.
Because of this stone's natural beauty with dynamic contrast, I decided to build this cuff with simple details. This cuff has been set with a low profile, single layer base setting for the turquoise. Two 14k solid yellow gold beads flank each side of the stone, and are the only detail added to enhance the pastel tones of the turquoise. I've given this ring a brushed finish and a light, waxed for patina for contrast. My Maker's Mark and purity stamp are on the inside of the cuff band.
Measurement: This cuff has an inside circumference of 6-1/2" which includes the 1" wrist opening and is 3/8" wide. This cuff can be sized down to make a perfect fit.
*Cuffs should be worn with a snugger fit than a bangle and should not be able to twist around your wrist when in place. A snug-ish fit will help keep the cuff ends from catching and pulling it open. Also, manipulating the cuff ends "open and closed" will cause weakness in the structure of your cuff over time, and ultimately break. Once you receive your cuff you will be able to adjust it slightly for your personal wrist anatomy, but then that should be it!
Shipping: Please expect shipping within one week of your purchase.
The Jewelry of Broken Pine: The items I make are one-of-a-kind pieces of reclaimed precious metals. There are no templates or molds used in any part of my fabrication process. There are inconsistencies and natural character that will make every piece of jewelry truly unique for you, and should be appreciated and expected. I forge, hammer, saw, solder, tweak, twist, stamp, texture and polish everything by hand. Please be sure of your jewelry preferences and sizes before purchasing. Measurements and sizes are very detailed. Please refer to the Policy & Resources section for the finer details. Your purchase constitutes agreement of my shop policies.
