Collectors all over the world clamor for Tommy Jackson jewelry, and this bracelet is a fine example of his appeal.
Expect: Crisp, precise overlay work – check. Visually alluring design – check. Beautiful finish to the silver as well as the stone – check. First-rate, natural stone – check.
Two things make this bracelet beautifully different: the cut-out areas of the silver rug pattern, and the large, gloriously deep green, natural Royston turquoise.
There are rug weavers in Tommy’s extended family, and this handsome cuff honors them, with its classic, stepped designs.
Overlaid on a base of sterling silver, some of the motifs stand out from the textured and darkened background; others are completely cut out, and let in the light – or whatever colors you are wearing, or, your skin .
These stepped patterns also evoke the traditional rain symbol, so the design has dual references.
Topping the cuff, is a softly triangular, natural Royston turquoise, in a splendidly large size and a gorgeously rich green.
Warm-hued matrix splashes across the stone, adding more organic forms to the rigorous angles of the silver.
The silver is polished to a brilliant shine, which glistens, against the darkened base of the overlaid areas.
Fine design and workmanship, and a high-quality turquoise, add up to a marvelously different bracelet that vibrates with energy and beauty.
Just what you’d expect from a Tommy Jackson piece.
