Large Ingot Silver Cuff
A classic, meticulously chiseled bracelet of ingot silver, less common and much more difficult to work, even, than the more usual ready-made sheet. Ingots are a bar of solid silver, which the jeweler must then hammer down to a workable sheet, before starting on the piece.
Only then can the creative work begin. The thickness is a bit greater than usual, owing to the method of fabrication.
Stamped and chiseled with precision and an artistic eye, this bracelet’s nine alternating rows almost resemble a woven or embroidered fabric.
Polished, rounded bands alternate with bands containing a variety of notched motifs, each similar, but different in subtle ways. The effect is richly ornamental, but in a restful, rhythmic way.
A quiet eye-dazzler, this larger-size bracelet would be equally handsome on men or women.
