This gorgeous opal cuff bracelet proves that jewelry does not have to be polished to perfection in order to stop you in your tracks. In fact, it is precisely the rough-hewn, wabi-sabi aesthetic that this piece exudes that makes it so stunning. The organically shaped cuff is an alchemical wonder, formed from a rich alloy of oxidized sterling silver and 14 to 24 karat rose, yellow and white gold. The alternating hues of blushing rose, warm yellow, gleaming white and blackened silver orchestrate a fascinating play of light across the surface of the cuff, providing a moody backdrop for the shimmering prong-set opal at its center. This cuff is on the small side, so make sure to measure your wrist accordingly. The inside diameter of this cuff is 1 7/8” and the width of the cuff is 1/16.”
