Award-winning silversmith, Albert Lee is noted for very heavy silver work with traditional Navajo designs. But his work does not feel traditional at all due to the weight of the silver and the extraordinarily fine finish of his jewelry.
Using only the highest-grade stones, Albert’s creations are statement pieces that are distinctive and rich. This bracelet features an oval deep blue Lapis Lazuli stone set in sterling silver. The stone is quite substantial measuring 1 ½” x ¾” wide. The shank is three separate pieces joined at the terminals into one cuff. The outside sterling silver wires are crenulated, while the center one has a wire twist. There are triangular accents and a rain drop on both sides of the stone. The simplicity and clean design of the sterling silver enhances the depth of the blue in the single lapis stone. This cuff measures: 5 ½” plus a gap of 1 ¼” for a total of 6 ¾”and weighs 108 grams.
Spectacular and contemporary in both look and feel. Perfect for an everyday cuff from a master silversmith.
Albert says, “The cobalt blue Lapis Lazuli has always been a favorite stone to work with. I love how the intense blue just pops and gives it its striking colors. A great piece to add to your collection.”
