SALE - Limited time only - Originally $199.99

This bracelet is VERY unique. I have yet to encounter one like it in my travels! The stone specimens are absolutely exquisite. *Note that shipping is high because it ships with insurance.

SIZE.
This bracelet is 7.5" long. The square pieces of malachite are faceted at the top. They stick up about 1/2" off your wrist. The malachite pieces are 1/2" in diameter also.

HALLMARKS.
This piece is marked as follows.

TR-43
950
Mexico

This puts the bracelet in a higher quality silver category because 925 is sterling. It's not quite fine silver, but an in between. The T in the TR of the registration number indicates that the piece was made in the infamous Taxco, Mexico. The designer of this ring is MR, according to The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks by Billie Hougart. I know this seems a bit ambiguous, but the fact that the mark is not entirely unidentifiable is amazing in itself! Many Mexican pieces are stamped with "mystery marks." This piece is dated somewhere in the 1980s.

CONDITION.
This piece is in magnificent condition. It is used, and has normal wear and tear on it, but there are NO chips in the stones or major defects anywhere in the piece. There is a hairline in one of the stones, but its nothing to worry about.

Thanks for looking!
