Beautiful cuff bracelet. Raised center bar with stamped horizontal ovals each framed with eight triangle designs.
1" Wide of with (1) Gold-filled bar, (2) Gold-filled rails, and (4) 1/16"W Sterling Silver Twisted Wire Accents.
Gold-filled, or gold overlay, is made by a combination heat and pressure that bonds a thin layer of karat gold to a brass (or other base metal) core. The designation 1/20th 12-karat gold represents 1/20th (or 5%) of the total weight of the material is 12k gold. Karat gold covers the base metal surface, making it tarnish-resistant.
This is NEW OLD STOCK, not previously owned or worn. Most have a slight patina from age. As some people prefer the patina, I have left most of them unpolished, if you wish to return the shine, have it professionally buffed or use a polishing cloth. Polishing of any metal is essentially removing a small amount of the surface, please keep that in mind as the gold is a coating NOT solid.
The artist's son estimates this was fabricated in the late 1990's to early 2000's. I purchased it from a trader who was closing their business in 2011.
