Please ignore the shadows and reflections in the sterling silver. The sterling is all shiny and bright--and too reflective! The bracelet measures 3/8 wide. The inlay part measures 2" long and 1/4 " wide.
The turquoise inlay is raised--giving it depth and definition. The bracelet is quite sturdy--weighing 22 grams.
The inside length from end to end is 5-3/16" plus it has a 1-1/4" gap. It will fit a 6-1/4" to 6-1/2" wrist.
PLEASE MEASURE YOUR WRIST BEFORE ORDERING. THERE IS NO ADJUSTING POSSIBLE. Francelita has sterling silver roping around the edges of the setting. White Buffalo Turquoise is quite unique and rare. It was discovered in the Dry Creek Mine north of Austin Nevada in 1993.Because of its hardness, it was sent to be assayed and it was in fact White Turquoise. The chemical name for Turquoise is Aluma Phosphate which in its pure chemical state is white. Turquoise takes on color via an intrusion of either copper (blue color) or iron (green color).
To date, no other vein of gem quality white turquoise has been discovered anywhere else in the world. Because White Turquoise is as rare as a white buffalo, the Indians call it "White Buffalo" Turquoise. The White Buffalo Turquoise is itself considered sacred and powerful.
The jewelry-making is an honoring or tribute to the "White Buffalo" Turquoise. Francelita has stamped "FY - Sterling" on the inside of this beautiful bracelet.This bracelet is sure to receive many compliments. A must have for the person with everything!
