Which is more impressive: the beautiful, natural, Royston turquoise stone, or the exquisite, meticulous silver work surrounding it? Happily, they combine to form a fabulous bracelet, so there is no need to decide.
The multiple bands of precise chisel work create a herringbone, or chevron, effect. This provides an understated, textured setting for the splendid stone.
Notice how the linear patterns on the cuff are echoed in the fan of stylized feathers that flank the beautiful turquoise.
Narrow bands of plain, gleaming silver, on the outer edges of the cuff, provide rest stops for the eye, making the patterned parts stand out in contrast.
The splendid, natural turquoise is set in a polished, hand-toothed silver bezel, placed above a rectangle of equally glittering, plain silver.
Elegantly detailed, every element of this bracelet contributes to the distinction to this superb piece.
