This sterling silver band was started with a flat silver strip from which was cut the eventual shape desired—wide at the top center and scaling down to narrow ends. A large central design element is a diamond shape that was pushed out from the back of the silver in repoussé form. The central diamond was then outlined in stamped parallel lines.

Adjacent to the central design are two repoussé bars, each of which is encircled with stamped designs. Near the ends of the bracelet are stamped designs resembling plants.
