INSANELY EXOTIC & OPULENT!
SIGNED "V (c)" for Valentino Couture/Copyright circa early to mid 1980's era GORGEOUS Byzantine style luxe gold goddess cuff. Opulent doesn't begin to describe this! Signed on the inside of the cuff, this is a relatively heavy, well made piece. All Valentino pieces are made in Italy, and this looks to be hand-crafted with an extreme attention to detail. Quite honestly, this piece in person is show-stopping. Looks to be high, high Haute Couture.
Hinged, best for a smaller sized wrist, this measures just under 2 1/4" inside diameter on the longer side, and approx 2" inside diameter on the shorter side. This is asymmetric in design, with the largest part measuring just under 2" wide. Measured along the outside: 8" length. Hinged, slightly bypass style. Molded, brushed antiqued gold tone, and just COVERED in multi-colored Gripoix, poured glass accents in varying shaped settings from circle, to oval, to triangle. Exotic colors of the gripoix glass. (this could be poured resin, or poured glass.) EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY PIECE.
Valentino Garavani is known for his use of superior stones and materials, and a very HIGH QUALITY craftsmanship design ~ as well as very exotic, Byzantine, Egyptian, Etruscan influences in his vintage couture jewelry.
I can tell you that in person, this piece is truly STUNNING. ONE OF MY BEST PIECES TO DATE - INCREDIBLE CRAFTSMANSHIP and HIGH END DESIGN ~ very Supermodel! Please NOTE: These are almost the EXACT same cuffs in the 1st editorial picture I've included ~ from the same Valentino collection, used in last month's PARIS VOGUE MAY 2013 photographed on Anna Selezneva, photographed by Ines & Vindooh, with the blue wide brimmed hat!!!
