Inlaid Sugilite, Black Jade, and Turquoise CuffMichael Dukepoo
A brilliant sense of color, exacting workmanship, and the highest quality materials, mark the work of this second-generation master.
Contemporary in appeal, radiant with rich color, and dramatically designed, this bracelet is set with the most opulent, gorgeous, natural, royal purple sugilite, set in turn on darkly lustrous, natural black jade.
Purple on black – deliciously luxurious, and sensuous, with glittering sterling silver to light it up. All the stones are of the highest quality, beveled, and formed to play with angular forms.
Carefully cut by hand, the center sugilitte echoes the form of its silver setting, as do the narrow ones on either side.
On each side of the bracelet, a triangle of brilliant blue, natural turquoise amps up the wattage, emphasizing the rich depths of the sugilite and inky jade.
The handsome shadowbox setting accentuates the sculptural forms and substantial thickness of the fine stones. Darkening the background silver maintains the drama, which is enlivened by carefully placed “stars” of silver.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and this beautiful one, of sumptuous sugilite set on black jade, can be worn every day!
