Zuni Estate Cuff Multi Stone Inlay Hallmarked Sterling Silver Marked Tbj
This listing is for an older channel inlay multi stone cuff signed TBJ. It features multi gemstones such as turquoise, jet, spiny oyster, and lapis.
This cuff is on the larger side measuring approx. 2 1/2" across and 5 1/2" inside from end to end not inclusive the inch gap. Wearable circumference 6 1/2 easily.
Most cuffs should go on sideways and then you can turn it once its on. It is 1/2 high in the front. It features a split shank side and a very pretty rope design around the top and bottom of the stones. This cuff is quite flexible and can be to be smaller or larger very easily not to be moved too often as not to loosen the stones. These stones are vibrant and will compliment any of your other turquoise or any of the featured stones in this cuff. Its weight is 16.7 grms so it's a lighter cuff. If you down want to be weighed down with a heavy cuff this is perfect!
The front graduates from larger stones down to smaller ones. It is quite appealing to the eye. All weights and measurements approximate. I cleaned this up just a bit so you can see the silver shine see in pic #1.
About channel inlay: Channel inlay artists use tiny strips of metal called channels to hold the stones in place. It is recognized by the segmenting lines between the stones. Most of the time, epoxy is used to secure stones in place for a secure long time fit.
