This was a gift to be presented for a special birthday. It is a solid twisted metal Cuff with a difference that measures 8mm in thickness. The Sterling Silver flat wire band is entwined with an 18ct Gold band of the same shape. The bangle is open to slide onto the wrist easily and sit neatly but is still secure. The ends were finished with textured caps of Sterling Silver which could easily have gemstones set inserted in them. Maybe in the future!! A great gift idea.
