Paula says -

"Beautiful stone work set with smooth bezel. A stunning bracelet that is very comfortable to wear, especially in hot climates, as the ventilation of the open bracelet design allows air to cool the wrist."

How to Choose and Fit a Cuff Bracelet

What does Sand Cast mean?

Sand cast items are Indian Hand Made items using a procedure developed by the Navajo silversmiths in the mid 1800s. It is a labor-intensive process that involves many steps.

Using Tufa Stone, a porous rock from volcanic ash, or Sandstone, a harder stone, the artist carves the design of the item being cast. Another flat stone is placed against the carved half of the mold. The halves are fastened together and a sprue hole is carved into one end. Molten silver is poured into the mold using the sprue hole. Once the silver cools, the item is taken out and finished. Bracelets are poured flat and then shaped.

Due to the porous nature of Tufa or Sand Stone, sandcast items will have character marks and imperfections such as small pits. That is the nature of Sand Casting and Indian Hand Made.
