About The Fox Mine Turquoise Cuff Circa 1945

Sterling silver sheet and wire, used to fabricate this bracelet, were mill rolled and plate drawn by hand.

The rope twist wire shank is solder secured and footed at each terminal.

The center front of the shank has been opened to provide a broader foundation for the single sea foam green turquoise stone and its smooth bezel, rope twist frame setting.

The 13/16" X 1/2" turquoise cabochon is flanked by two smelted silver raindrops on each side and a stampe-decorated marquise-shaped ornament that follows the tapering of the shank to each side.
