Classically handsome, jasper and onyx Modernist bypass cuff
A wonderful and stately Mexican bracelet with roots in mid-century design. Set with bands of onyx and jasper stones, this clamper cuff wraps around the wrist with ends that 'bypass' each other. A classic more than six decades after it was crafted, this is a heavy piece and you're sure to love the feeling of its heft on your hand!
Composition: Sterling silver<
Stamped: TA-150 (the maker's mark), 925, Mexico.
Measurements: 6.15 cms at the widest. Adjustable, though best suited for a small to medium wrist. (If it slips comfortably, you can slip your hand into the cuff without widening the hinge. Otherwise, please flick/open the hinged bracelet and pass your hand through it and close the hinge. Do NOT try to force your wrist through the gap in the 'bypass'- this could damage the cuff.)

Please note: (1) All the jewelry in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewelry.
(2) All the jewelry has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewelry is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewelry is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
