I LOVE this cuff. It is 1 1/2" wide w/the heishe channel 1" wide - a few nice green turquoise tubes sprinkled in. I have worn it for 10 yrs and all still in place. Whoever made it did a great job, no chips or missing pieces. They used a glue but it hasn't yellowed the heishes - no markings. I am not sure of its age.

    Have you had the metal tested for silver content?

    No I haven't - it's very shiny and hasn't tarnished over the years so I think it's a base metal. Honestly Davy - I don't know how to test metal for silver content.

    What a nice bracelet!
    Well you can buy a simple acid test and testing stone on internet for a few bucks. Its very simple to test. You just make a small scratch with the object on the testingstone. Then you put a drop of acid on the left over scratch on the stone. If red or brown appears, its silver.
    I bought a gold, platinum and silver testing set a few months ago and its a really fun toy to play with!
    This is an example:

    Thank you for this information. I will buy a kit or maybe all 3. So helpful - thanks again my friend.

    You're welcome.
    I find it interesting to see how much times I was wrong or right about something.
    The acid test proved me wrong a few times especially with some low carat gold and with silver.
    But I'm sure if you collect jewelry as long as you do, you get it right most of the time without having to test.

    Thank you mani and vintagejewel for your love. Sara - isn't this gorgeous? I'm watching one on ebay right now (set in sterling, not steel like mine) and it says 60's or 70's which sounds right. I wear this one a lot because brown and green are my favorite colors. Thanks for your nice comments!
