A JOHN HARDY 18K YELLOW GOLD, STERLING SILVER &BLUE TOPAZ"BATU SARI" BRACELET!
JOHN HARDY ISACTUALLY ONE OF THE FEW DESIGNERS OF TODAY THAT TRULY CREATES ORIGINAL, UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL HIGH END JEWELRY. THIS CANADIAN MASTER ARTISAN~JEWELRY DESIGNER CREATED THIS WITH THE REPRESENTATIONS OF THIS IMPORTANT "BATU SARI" BRACELET BEING WORN BY A RAJASTHANI PRINCESS. THE BRACELET BOASTS AN ANCIENT MYSTIQUE THAT'S IRRESISTABLE WITH IT'S EXTRAORDINARY LAYERING OF CHAINS MADE OF HEAVY ALL SOLID & REAL STERLING SILVER THAT ARE PERFECTLY WOVEN AND HAND CRAFTED WITH A RARELY FOUND PATTERNING WITHTHREE GEM SET STATIONS ACCENTED WITH COSTLY 18KT YELLOW GOLD AND WITH STUNNING HUGE NATURAL BLUE TOPAZ JEWELS. THE JEWELLED STATIONS OF THIS SUMPTUOUS 100% AUTHENTIC SIGNED JOHN HARDY ORIGINAL ARE EXTENSIVELY DECORATED WITH REAL 18KT SOLID YELLOW GOLD APPLIED PANELS AND BEADING PROVIDING A BREATHTAKING APPEAL. HARDY LOOKED TO THE PATTERNING OF THE INDIAN SARI ~ A SOFT AND HIGHLY DECORATED FABRIC WORN BY THE WOMEN OF INDIA FOR OVER 5,000 YEARS TO GIVE THIS AN INTENSELY FEMININE AND DEEPLY ROMANTIC STYLING. THESE 3 FASCINATING AND VERY HIGH QUALITY REAL BLUE TOPAZ GEMS EACH MEASURE 8mms IN LENGTH BY 6mms WIDE PROVIDING A TOTAL WEIGHT OF OVER 5 CARATS (5.16 CARATS PER THE APPRAISAL). THESE IDEAL LIGHT BLUE TOPAZ GEMS ARE EACH OF EXQUISITE QUALITY AND TRULY FLAWLESS WITHOUT A SINGLE IMPERFECTION SO THEY REALLY SPARKLE WITH TONS OF BRILLIANT VIBRANCY. IT'S JUST WHAT YOU'D EXPECT FROM ONE OF THE WORLD'S PREMIER JEWELRY MAKERS! ANOTHER SIGNIFICANT ASPECT OF JUST HOW SUPERLATIVE HARDY'S OLDER CREATIONS TRULY WERE MUST BE THE PHENOMENAL WEIGHT AND WITH SUCH AN ABUNDANT USE OF PRECIOUS & FAR MORE EXPENSIVE REAL 18KT YELLOW GOLD AND SLEEK SOLID (925 PURITY) STERLING SILVER, THE EXTRAORDINARY 30 GRAMS (APPROXIMATELY 1 TROY OUNCE) IS SURELY NOT TO BE FOUND IN HIS NEW LINES OF FINE JEWELRY. THERE'S SO MUCH MORE OBVIOUS QUALITY IN HIS OLDER PIECES MADE OF HEAVY SOLID PRECIOUS HIGH KARAT GOLD AND STERLING SILVER. A LOT OF HIS MORE MODERN PIECES ARE NOW-A-DAYS MASS PRODUCED AND MADE OF LIGHTWEIGHT AND FLIMSY METALS THROUGH A PROCESS CALLED HOLLOW CASTING. IT'S HOW HARDY AND OTHERS HAVE MAINTAINED THEIR PRICES BY CUTTING BACK ON PRECIOUS METAL COSTS, HAND LABOR AND EVEN GEM QUALITY. IT'S A GREAT REASON TO OWN HIS ESTATE & VINTAGE ORIGINALS AS NOT ONLY DO YOU GET SO MUCH MORE VALUE IN SILVER AND GOLD BUT EVEN THE QUALITY OF GEMSTONES AND WORKMANSHIP IS SO MUCH BETTER, NOT TO FORGET, A GREAT BARGAIN PRICE ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE LUCKY ENOUGH TO FIND HIS CLASSIC PIECES OF FINEJEWELRY OFFERED IN A REAL sale ON ! BESIDES THE EXTRA HEAVY WEIGHT, SPECTACULAR NATURAL BLUE TOPAZ GEMS AND SENSATIONALLY RARE 3 STATION DESIGN, THE OVERALL LENGTH IS EQUALLY AS DELIGHTFUL AT 7&3/8 INCHES LONG (INCLUDING THE CLASP). THIS WILL EASILY FIT A LARGE 7 INCH WRIST OR ANY SMALLER WRIST WITH APPROPRIATE DRAPING. EVEN THE OVERALL SCALE OF THE BRACELET IS IDEAL AT 6.5mms WIDE (WOVEN AREA) WITH THE ELEGANT BLUE TOPAZ & 18KT YELLOW GOLD ACCENTED STATIONS MEASURING 8mms IN MAXIMUM WIDTH. I DON'T KNOW IF I MENTIONED IT BUT EVERY BLUE TOPAZ IS SUBLIMELY HAND SET WITH VERY DIFFICULT AND TIME CONSUMING TRIANGULAR (PYRAMID) SHAPE TENSION MOUNTS THAT ARE THE PERFECT WAY OF PREVENTING ANY POSSIBILITY OF ACCIDENTALLY LOOSING A GEMSTONE. IT'S JUST ONE MORE EXAMPLE OF THE THOUGHTFUL DETAILING THAT YOU WON'T FIND TODAY. EVEN THE GIA (GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA) GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST WAS SURELY ENTICED BY THE OVERWHELMING QUALITY, SUPERLATIVE HAND CRAFTSMANSHIP, HEFTINESS AND BEAUTIFUL BLUE TOPAZ GEMS BY PROVIDING THE APPRAISAL WITH AN ESTIMATED RETAIL REPLACEMENT VALUE FOR INSURANCE PURPOSES ONLY OF $1,550.00. THE QUALITY OF THIS COMPARED TO NEW IS SO OBVIOUS MAKING THIS OLDER ESTATE TREASURE A WONDERFUL RARITY BUT EVEN RARER IS FINDING ONE OF HIS MOST DESIREABLE BRACELETS BEING OFFERED ON ESPECIALLY IN A REAL sale WITH NO HIDDEN PRICE OR SECRET AMOUNT REQUIRED TO WIN. JUST offer AS YOU ARE COMFORTABLE AS ULTIMATELY THIS ORIGINAL JOHN HARDY BRACELET WILL BE SOLD TO WHOMEVER IS THE HIGH buyer WHEN THE sale ENDSREGARDLESS OF THE FINAL BARGAIN SELLING PRICE.
