A triangular-shaped cabochon of green turquoise with golden brown matrix is the focal point of this mid-century bracelet. The turquoise is set in a smooth-sided silver bezel and placed on a platform on which the artist filed small lines giving the bracelet a sunburst effect. The centerpiece is set on four bands with chiseled chevron lines. The initials “LP” are engraved on the back of the piece. It is not known to whom these initials belong.

Condition: The Four Band Bracelet with Triangle Shaped Cabochonis in excellent condition. The stone is intact and the silver has a nice patina.

Provenance: Colorado collection.
