Seven carats of faceted blue topaz glisten in this beautiful cuff bracelet from Bali. Artisan Dewa Arimbawa handcrafts the sterling silver accessory with an interesting twisting braid motif that decorates the length of the cuff, and traditional floral bun, or vine, motifs at either end. The gorgeous bracelet is completed with two oval gemstones that shimmer from within bezel settings, accentuating the elegance of the design. A concealed hinge at the center makes the lovely cuff easy to wear.
