Where to start on this amazing one of a kind bracelet! This bracelet features raised repousse style silver work throughout the front to the sides of the bracelet! The silver work was completely hand done with floral type designs all across the bracelet with flowers and leaf designs! The artist also added a twisted rope design along the edges of the bracelet to give it that unique and beautiful look! Can you imagine completely hand crafting a bracelet of this magnitude completely by hand? The time patience and let alone skill would have to be amazing! The silver would look great polished with a polishing rag and just getting the high points and leaving the patina in the low points, we can also do this for you if requested! The bottom of the bracelet has 4 points where silver has been added for either the bracelet to sit on and be displayed or to prevent wear to the design of the bracelet when worn and rubbing! The turquoise is a very rare spiderweb early 1900's turquoise. This type of turquoise almost certainly came out of Nevada and most likely came from a Tiffany & CO mine as they owned 95% of all high grade mines at the time. This is by far the most impressive and beautiful high grade turquoise that i have ever seen from this era, way before newer turquoise mining inventions. This turquoise is actually a little greener than the picture dictates! There are two slight what almost looks like a nick, however that is natural to the turquoise. The black spiderweb matrix running through this amazing turquoise is unbelievable! This bracelet and stone would of been custom made for a VERY rich and wealthy lady of the day. She would request exactly what she wanted as in style. The jeweler would then custom create this master piece you see before you and have the stones imported in and hand cut and polished! The amount of time and skill that went into this master piece of a bracelet is just simply amazing! This bracelet truly is a museum quality once in a lifetime bracelet!

About Us:We are two young professionals "Alexis" & "Chris". We met in a photography class in college. We both go to college and sell New, Vintage, & Antique jewelry on as a full time job. We are not your typical college aged kids, we know the value of a dollar and what customer service truly means, we will always go out of our way to make our customers as happy as possible. We started out in the jewelry business knowing individuals who were in the smelting business. As we watched these smelters melting new, vintage, & antique 100+ year old jewelry for the metal value, we cringed!! We thought, there must be a way to save this special and once in a lifetime type of jewelry instead of melting these wonderful items.Well then the bright idea of selling these beautiful items smacked us in the face!We started buying small items such as rings, bracelets and necklaces from these smelters and selling these items to wonderful people who would appreciate them and cherish them for a lifetime!
After starting out small time, we started to go to Antique shops, estate sales, estate buy outs, smelters, sales, coin shows, or just about anywhere possible we could get our hands on these wonderful and beautiful jewelry items! We started to set up at trade shows and other events to sell to people, we love the interaction with people! To work more with our school schedule we eventually phased out the trade show atmosphere and started selling jewelry on ! I'm glad we did, you can get just as much interaction with people over the internet as you can face to face. We love all of our customers and love the quick messages anybody likes to send our way! After starting to sell jewelry on we started our business called Aumia Gold & Silver Jewelry And Collectibles LLC, "Aumia" Is Golden Lady in Latin. We try to offer a variety of jewelry from Rings, Necklaces, Pendants, Brooch's, Gold & Silver. We also offer Native American Jewelry, Art Deco Jewelry, Victorian Jewelry, Antique Chinese Jewelry and much much more! We try to post a mix of each variety every day Mon-Fri.
We found our niche! The success on has made this into our full time job. Because of our great loyal customers and new ones every day you are helping us provide an education in Genetics, Biology and soon to be business. We also donate large amounts of money to Rotary. We both heavily believe in helping others and creating wonderful new opportunities internationally and domestically. Aumia has provided us our future and love towards our passion. We can’t see ourselves doing anything else. It is something new every day. I combine my hobby of photography, and meeting new people. We treat people with theutmostrespect and customer service is our main priority. There are always goofy stories about us but too much for an listing. We hope we have given you some insight to who we are and our passion for this industry. Check our page for more fun information!
