This is what original, very expensive, not-found-everywhere No. 8 Mine turquoise looks like—prior to the onslaught of the "New" No. 8 that is prevalent now. This prize is two-and-one-eighth-inches wide; it weighs seven ounces and has a 6.75-inch wrist circumference (measurement includes the "gap" in the cuff. The Drifter selected this stone long ago and had Gilbert make it using thick, 12-gauge Sterling silver. A person needs to measure the total circumference of his or her wrist, and the size needs to be about 6 and 5/8th's-inches to 6.75-inches, because any adjustment is ill-advised due to the thickness of the Sterling. It has both repousse' and intricate hand-stamping, AND, the old original No. 8 mine turquoise to boot. What a stone and what a treasure. Hallmarked "Gilbert Tom." Alway free Priority shipping.
