A vintage RKG cuff! I made this cuff about 4 years ago, I've held onto this piece for quite sometime and ready to set her free from her jewelry box. This Sterling Silver handmade cuff features a rare Hachita Turquoise cabochon, with stunning custom work from yours truly.
- Rare Hachita Turquoise
- Solid Sterling Silver
- Repoussé work and beaded wire
Hachita Turquoise comes from New Mexico, a mine from prehistoric times. First discovered in the 1880s and is some of the hardest turquoise around, most of it had to be blasted out. The prehistoric mine closed in the 1920s. Today you'll see a bit of Hachita on the market but mostly in vintage jewelry. This rare gorgeous stone is mostly green with light to dark brown matrix often forming a spider web but also comes in a light blue.
