Completely hand constructed, the cuff is Kazakh, one of the minority groups that live in Afghanistan. This cuff was probably used as a part of a dowry, one of the two identical cuffs a bride would wear for special occasions, insurance against hard times. Three large embedded lapis lazuli stones accent the piece. The design is made by soldering small wires and cut out pieces which have been stamped. The cuff has a high content of silver and the yellow color is a gold wash.
This cuff fits people of medium wrists. I have big, Viking arms and it is tight on me. It would be too big on a tiny frame. If you purchase this and it does not fit, notify us immediately and send it back within three days for a full refund. We want you to be happy with it!
