“Platero” means “silversmith” in Spanish. The aptness of the artist’s name is seen in every meticulous detail of this beautiful bracelet.
Scrupulously clean and exact silver work supports a majestically lovely, charoite stone.
The swirling pattern of purples, from pale lavender to deep lilac, is typical of this gorgeous stone.
Discovered only in 1978, it is only found in Siberia, named for the Chara river, and is as rare as it is lovely.
Cleverly reprising the swirls seen in the stone, there is an applied silver spiral on either side of the charoite.
These are flanked, in turn, by an applied silver fan, stamped like feathers.
Beyond these fans, on each side, is a row of four, dainty floral shapes, composed of tiny little silver domes.
Raised silver channels support the flowerets, with spaces between them lightly textured, for an additionally rich look.
Lots of ornament, but the symmetry and harmonizing shapes lend a serene air to the cuff, highlighting the unusual, and luscious stone.
A rare stone and masterful silver work result in rare beauty, in a cuff to flaunt alone, or stack with others.
