I drove 1 1/2 hours each way to get this amazing cuff and it is the largest cuff that I have ever offered for sale in my 22 years.
The stone is deep blue turquoise with black chert. There are 3 mines that have turquoise that looks like this so I will not attribute it to a particular mine.
This stone measures 71mm by 72 mm. The deep blue color with the black chert is striking. It is set in a notched bezel that is stamp decorated. There is large twisted wire rope and a stamp decorated frame around that. The stone is supported with three splayed cuffs that are joined at the terminal tips with large hand dropped raindrops. Two of these cuffs are stamp decorated.
The interior of the cuff measures 6 1/2" plus the opening of 1 1/8". The face measures 3 5/8" by 3 1/2". Weight: 236.5 grams.
Hallmarked TF and may be the work of Thomas Francisco.
