Green Quartz Sterling Cuff

A large "cushion cut" oval Green Quartz covered in diamond shaped facets has been set into a Sterling Silver wristcuff. The subtly coloured translucent, soft olive Green Quartz could easily be mistaken for Citrine (which is basically Yellow Quartz anyway) but is slightly greener.

The handmade Sterling cuff has fringe of cut out "spirals" and a layer of brass beneath a triangular silver spiral/foliage screen. (almost resembling Kazak work.)

The gap measures 23 mm with a stretch of about 2 mm not more. So if you have a medium wrist, not big or small, you should be able to get in and out of this piece easily. A limp or relaxed wrist will always slip into a smaller opening more easily than a tensed one (all your tendons go rigid when you tense.)

AVOID ALTERING OR STRETCHING IT AS THERE ARE TOO MANY PARTS TO IT, THEREFORE SOME MAY BUCKLE OR DAMAGE IF PLAYED WITH.

An occasional careful polish with a dry "Silver Polishing Cloth" bring up the contrast of the raised and lowered surfaces without removing too much oxide. Avoid dips and creams.
