Paula says -"The photos make the sterling silver look pitted but that's just surface dirt from storage that will wipe right off. It looks to me like this bracelet was never worn."
"We leave the natural patina on our pawn jewelry because many of our customers like the old "vintage" appearance. If you would like me to polish this bracelet before we ship it then put a note in the note section of the order page.
"Want your jewelry to look like new? Read my blog 'To Polish or Not to Polish'."
Turquoise is associated with the sky,
