As you can see in the last photo ( Ben Grimes by Nagi Sakai for Flair April 2012), this bracelet ( or one like it) is a fashion trend as well as a dramatic 1920's vintage etruscan bracelet is fit for a queen . Hand wrought with a large amount of intricate detailing, this has tiny faux turquoise glass beads that accent these large Turquoise cabs with rich veining. The bracelet graduates in size and will fit a bit higher up on the arm if you like. It is quite wide ( 2 1/4") and it has a pin closure. I can't even imagine the time it must have been to make this. This is 6 1/3" at its smallest and 7 1/2" at its largest. Rich old gilt brings out the golden color which makes these turquoise cabs seem even more magnificent. The first photo shows to different views of the same bracelet.
