This cuff bracelet hails from Victorian times. It is made of Vulcanite, derived from natural rubber. At the time it was used as an alternative to the more expensive natural Jet.
This gorgeous cuff's center piece is a high relief singing bird, rendered in the most minute detail, sitting on a branch and framed by foliage.
The oval cameo measures slightly over 1 3/4" by 1 7/8" at the widest point and is 11/16" at the highest point. The cuff size is adjustable and it is a bit over 1 1/4" wide next to the cameo, tapering a bit to 1" at the ends.
The bracelet is designed as a bypass bangle with open back - make sure to slip it over the hand as you would with a bangle bracelet. Do not pull the ends apart as it could break this beautiful thing!
