Native American Horse Design Cuff Bracelet with Turquoise and Sterling Silver - Hallmarked - Hand Made in USA Jewelry
This Turquoise and Sterling Cuff is a newly designed sterling cuff. The horse design has reins and a saddle with a turquoise stone set in a toothed bevel. Looking at this bracelet, it makes me ready to ride.
It is hallmarked Sterling inside and has a full name, but because it's on the edge, I can't read it thoroughly.
This bracelet weighs 22.4 grams. The inner bracelet circumference measures approximately 6", plus a 1-1/8" opening. The cuff's width is 1/4" at the ends and 1" at its widest point which is the center of the bracelet. The horse itself measures 2 1/8" wide from nose to tail and 1" tall from bottom of feet to top of saddle.
A cuff bracelet is a bracelet that is rigid, has no clasp, but has a gap, an open portion that allows you to slip the bracelet over your wrist. The best way to get a good fit is to measure a cuff bracelet you already have that fits you well and look for a bracelet with those dimensions. The total inside circumference is the inside circumference of the bracelet from end to end plus the gap (the distance between the ends). This is the best way. Measuring with string or ribbon just doesn't work that well.
There is also an art to putting on and taking off a cuff bracelet. To put one on, curve your left hand over the top of the bracelet. In one movement, press the lower edge of the bracelet into the soft area on the underside of your wrist where your tendons and veins show and roll the bracelet over the top of your wrist. To remove a bracelet, first press the edge nearest you into the underside of your wrist and the roll the bracelet back off your wrist toward you. With a little practice, you will see how easy this technique is.
