I need my collectors weekly friends help with this. I had the same bracelet & had to part with it last year. I was lucky enough to find the same one after a long search on ebay. The problem is this - I know my pictures aren't top notch, so I'll add daylight pictures as soon as possible & I also realize turquoise has natural imperfections, however , to me the center picture shows a crack, not a flaw in the turquoise & I'm not getting any response from the seller. I want to be fair before I ask for refund, so please give me you honest opinions. To me, the dark, pitted area could be a flaw, but the line across to me looks like a crack. Guys, please let me know what you think as the "so called expert" I took it to today kept changing her mind & she worked in a southwestern jewelry shop. Thanks, my friends!

    Thanks, Sean! It's a special piece, quite unique from the typical slave bracelets you see, so I hope I can work it out with the seller & maybe just replace the center stone if she's willing

    In my professional opinion. And jewelry is my trade. The turquoise is cracked and a lot were easily damaged and chipped or cracked. This is a slight flaw. But very common and it looks secure in the claw mounting. But overall it's a lovely bracelet and I used mineral oil and rub it on both the turquoise and coral. Nice score.

    Thanks, Moonstone & Dr.fluffy. If that's a common thing with turquoise, so be it. I really do like the piece! Thanks for you're help!

    It's a very pretty piece. I am not sure how you feel about it, but if it bothers you enough, you can easily change out the turquoise...

    Looks great, I just usually run my fingernail to test for a crack in pottery etc., it looks super on your hand, it is very beautiful.
