Women's Rough Gem Cuff (garnet)

From $145
Details

Emeralds, moonstones, and garnets are at their best, I think, in their unrefined state. This is how they look straight out of the earth, without facets, polishing, or any other fussy treatments. Each stone is slightly irregular in shape and size, but most measure about 1/4" in diameter. We've taken special care to try to match gems by hue, but expect yours to have chips, cracks, inclusions, dark spots, remnants of neighboring rock: all fascinating "flaws" that make them more lovable. Each precious stone is carefully secured in a gold-fill prong setting. The cuff is brass, and it can be carefully bent open or closed to fit most wrists. About)).
