Spratling silver caviar bracelet

Item #4451

This design, from Spratling's first design phase, was used in many different pieces and forms. It was often just produced with silver balls (instead of the turquoise ones). It drapes beautifully on the arm; a real pleasure to wear!

We have a pair of Hector Aguilar Silver & Turquoise "Caviar" Earrings that are a great match for this on sale as well, item #4456.
