Did you know that the name for the deep blue-green stone we call turquoise is actually based on misinformation? It’s from the French word for Turkish, because European traders found the stone at Turkish bazaars and assumed it was mined nearby, although what they found was most likely from present-day Iran. Nevertheless, Turkish jewelers are known for their inventive designs, as evidenced by the ornate treasures of the Ottoman Topkapi Palace.
This cuff bracelet features perfect turquoise spheres channel-set into a hand-wrought, patterned 22-karat gold vermeil cuff. The style is inspired by jewelry worn by upper class Turkish women during the Roman era, and it pairs perfectly with our Turkish Blue Moon Turquoise Hoop Earrings.
Handcrafted in Istanbul, Turkey. 2 1/2" inner diameter at the cuff’s widest point.
