Sterling Curved Cuff with Cut and Stamped Geometric Overlay

Charlie John

About The Sterling Curved Cuff with Cut and Stamped Geometric Overlay

The unusual curvator of this particular piece is quite rare among Charlie John bracelet designs.  When worn on the right wwrist, with the offset peak at the top, a resulting reverse scallop of valley beautifully cradles the outer prominence of the wrist bone.  The gleaming bottom curving of his cuff, with its sweeping dark lines, frames the top of the hand on which it comfortably rests.  

Splendid architecture and graceful wearability make this Charlie John design a timeless classic.
