Trying to determine turquoise, construction, age and value of my new cuff

image
I just received a new cuff with some awesome turquoise. It is large and heavy and not the least bit flexible. Weight is 93.46g and the front is 2 1/4” by 1 7/8”. The turquoise is approximately 1 1/2” by 1”. The side

carinated bands continue and make up the border surrounding the turquoise. The center piece of the band is twisted with a smooth narrow band on each side. I would welcome opinions about the turquoise. The seller said Royston but I think there might be a chance that it is Turquoise Mountain. I am including one picture of the cuff next to the Turquoise Mountain necklace that I have for comparison. I also don’t know enough to decide whether the cuff is cast or ingot. I think it may be fairly new. And finally, I would love to have an approximate value. (I also have a matching ring but it is being sized and I don’t have it here. Thanks for your help.

I love it this set! The turquoise is beautiful! I like the little red coral bits on the necklace, they make the color of the turquoise pop!

Probably so because it’s quite addictive. Sometimes it’s the turquoise and other times the silver work that suck me in. I do believe I need a 12 step program!:rofl: it’s been my “retirement fund” for so long that I could probably open a store. :woman_shrugging:

I, too, am interested in learning how his cuff was constructed. It certainly has a sandcast vibe going on.

I’ve decided this is a variation on hunter/gather behavior.

Just luck at first,then learning quarry’s location/habitat ,when to strike,best(fatal)target, more choosy on which speciman(how many antler points,best flavor/amount of meat,etc.)…

Toting the trophy home w/out the need to butcher,clean,freeze,smoke…taxidermy mount :wink: &,brag about your catch HERE. Where others understand the show-off attitude.

That is a great analogy! I understand completely since I grew up hunting, fishing, shrimping and crabbing. Now it’s been replaced by my NA turquoise addiction. :100: P.S. I ate my catch; the deer forest in the den is my husbands doing. :rofl:

@Jason i hope you will share your opinion with us. Thank you for your help.

I always like to give the seller information credibility since they might have a little more insight on the purchase information. It could be a piece of Royston Turquoise. The construction is most likely fabricated wire. It is a nice heavy construction and a valuable piece. $600 - $750ish. Hope that helps.

Thanks Jason. The seller did say Royston and I have a matching ring that she is currently having sized. I think I might’ve done pretty well. Thank you very much for the information.
