The texture on this super-shiny cuff bracelet is was made by hammering twist-ties into the silver to make subtle impressions. Sadly, the twist-ties didn't survive the ordeal.
Finished to a bright mirror shine, this cuff is medium sized with about 6 inches of silver and a 1 inch gap. It can be adjusted slightly to fit most medium-sized wrists.
Silver, oh silver. This lustrous white metal is amazing - more reflective than gold, more conductive than copper and just plain gorgeous. When used for jewelry, silver is mixed with copper or zinc to provide more durability and reduce tarnishing. Fine silver is 99.9% silver while sterling silver is 92.5%. Other alloys are used for specific processes, such as reticulation (80% silver). All silver will tarnish over time, but can be easily cleaned and polished.
