Fine Silver, Sterling Silver, Copper, and Bisbee Turquoise Cuff
Description & Dimensions:
This wide cuff combines the best of four elements and minerals to make Synergy. The turquoise gemstone is from the Bisbee mine located right here in Bisbee, Arizona. It was cut, shaped, and polished by the artist, KD Steele. The fine silver (.999) was rolled out from an ingot and then textured with a chevron pattern. A strip of copper was textured to simulate a feather before being soldered to the fine silver cuff. Lastly, a fine silver bezel and sterling silver (.925) braided wire were soldered to the copper feather to set the gemstone off nicely in this custom bezel.
This cuff is 2 inches wide by 5 ¾” long, with a 1 inch opening.
There is very little Bisbee Turquoise available today and due its rarity and exceptional beauty it is very valuable. Bisbee turquoise comes in many shades of blue with webbing, but the highest quality Bisbee turquoise is dark blue with chocolate brown or red webbing. Genuine Bisbee turquoise is rare and highly collectible.
Turquoise, the captivating blue-green stone of the ancients, represents wisdom, tranquility, protection, good fortune, and hope.
