Emily Shapiro's striking Waterfall Cuff. An open work, unique design with rough cut aquamarine stones and kyanite embedded in recycled brass. The natural imperfections of the iridescent, blue gemstones are visible both inside and outside the setting. A cool compliment to Emilie's Seafaring Cascading and Aquamarine Immersion Necklaces. Approximately 3" by 2 1/2". Cuff slightly adjustable.
