These gorgeous handcrafted bracelets have been donated for sale by Jillian Nar a very talented artist and gorgeous person.
Each bracelet is crafted with infinite care from the highest quality materials in both Argentium Silver and 14K Gold Fill.
Argentium Silver is Sterling Silver, with a higher silver content (93.5%) than regular sterling )92.5% silver). It has tarnish-resistant properties due to the addition of germanium into the alloy. It is nickel-free.
14 Karat Gold-Fill; Gold-filled jewellery is composed of a solid layer of karat gold, mechanically bonded to the base metal. It has a much higher gold-content than plating (up to 25 times thicker than that produced by gold electroplating) and meets a legal standard. It does not tarnish and will last many years, even with daily wear.
