White Buffalo Bracelet in Sterling Silver on Black Leather Cuff, w13
This genuine White Buffalo turquoise has the coveted stark white color juxtaposed very black matrix and was mined in Tonopah, Nevada. The deep black within the stone and the stark white look fantastic on the black leather cuff. I've set the stone in sterling silver on a heavy sterling backplate with a halo of patina around the stone.
The leather cuff has a brass button stud-type closure that can be stiff at first but soften with use. It is 1 inch wide, about 3mm thick, and is adjustable by one inch - it can close at 6 inches and 7 inches. (Let me know if you need a longer one.)
I have designed the setting with a sterling silver bar on the back, which the leather strap threads through with a snug fit so the stone will not slide on the leather. The advantage of this setting is that it is so versatile! If you want a different color, the leather wristband is super easy to change. If the leather wears out, it is easy to replace, and your cuff is as good as new. Also, the stone can be worn on your favorite chain as a pendant or thread through your hatband, and the possibilities are endless!
