$1,075.00

Description

Wow. What a trophy. This is one of the big custom cuffs that the Drifter had Gilbert Tom make five or six years ago.  Actually, it cost so much to make that it was not practical to market it at that time.  Now prices have risen enough to facilitate its salebarely.  It is quality all the way.  Thick, twelve-gauge Sterling; lots of reverse-stamped repousse' and intricate hand-stamping, and an older, original and very expensive No. 8 Mine turquoise stone with just the right amount of copper spider web.  It has scalloped edges as well.  This cuff is seven and 1/8th-inches inside circumference—including the "gap" in the cuff.  So the perfect fit would be seven to seven and one-eighth wrist circumference. It is important to get an accurate measurement of one's wrist size before ordering a big cuff like this with thick-gauge Sterling, as it would be difficult to change the size.  So stop at a Dollar-type store and buy a cloth tailor's tape for a dollar.  Width is a consistent 2 and 1/8th-inch, and weight is an astonishing 204.2-grams, or 7.2-ounces.  Hallmarked "Gilbert Tom."  Always complimentary Priority shipping within the U.S.
