The stone rests at the center of the face portraying shades of greenish blue with large patchy dark matrixes and hints of pyrite speckled throughout. The stone is in mint condition with a satin (nearly matte) polished finish and sits securely within its bezel. The stone is surrounded by three detailed borders with each border being different and larger than the one before it. Each side of the cuff adorns a thick twisted rope neighbored by a carinated rod.
The stone and silver work all rest over 5 carinated shanks of heavy gauge silver. The shanks meet at each end with a smooth finish for an easy application to the wrist. A signature is etched on the back of the face and appears to be two initials that read "RC". There is no sterling stamp however, the silver has been tested and proves to sterling.
