This is a stunning contemporary cuff with beautiful inlaid stones of turquoise, lapis and sugilite. The artist has very carefully laid each stone into the sterling silver enhancing the natural colors of turquoise, blue and purple. The accents of the sterling silver native designs on either side of the cuff add to the uniqueness of the design. Each side is a perfect match to the other and each meets at the center of the cuff with a large piece of gorgeous deep blue lapis. This is a heavy cuff weighing 122.6 grams.
