This is a one-of-one piece and brings together three amazing stones: Turquoise, Chrysocolla, and Blood stone.
The three spotted turquoise stones form the obvious center-piece of this design, with strong Thai silver pieces surrounding each stone. If you look closely, you will notice that the outer silver pieces are smaller than the central counter-parts and this supports the gradual tapering of the elements as 8 millimeter chrysocolla stones take over on one side and 8 millimeter blood stone takes over on the other.
Different stones on each side are often a key feature of my designs as I seek to offer the wearer a "Reverso" effect (of the kind made famous by JLC in the watch world) in which you can switch up the look in one of two ways as desired.
If you know Vinchesi Designs you also know that I have a particular passion for Chrysocolla stones, and in this bracelet I have chosen such a spectacular array of them that they may just steal the show.
This photo provides a closer look at these specimens in direct sunlight:
On the other side is a stunning collection of Blood stone pieces, and near the clasp the final piece in each series is a counter-point echoing the opposing side.
For luxury bracelet designs in the Elite collection I use a heavier Thai silver clasp, shown here with steel split rings, wire guards, and sterling silver crimp covers.
