This seemingly delicate bracelet of vintage lace dipped in sterling silver speaks to the resilience of the Colombian people and the blending of cultural traditions.

        Comments about Colombian Sterling Silver Lace Cuff Bracelet:

        This was an attractive bracelet with an interesting country of origin story. Unfortunately the "dipped" sterling silver coating was not very good-certainly the item was not "sterling silver" as advertised.

          This is a beautiful bracelet that my fiance fell in love with the moment she saw it! I then showed the bracelet to my sister, to get her opinion, and now she too wants the bracelet!

          Both of these women are very stylish conscientious consumers. My fiance collects fine jewelry from all around the world and she said that this peice was unlike any other that she had seen in all of her travels. She loved the history and story of the lace and the women who craft the bracelets. I cannot wait to see her face when I give it to her!
