Los Castillo cuffs are amazing pieces of wearable art - the quality of the silver sheet used to make them, their balanced weight, the crisp detail in the design and the flawless execution combine to create little masterpieces. In the cuff at hand, inspiration was drawn from Mexico's rich Aztec and Maya past. Whether you want to see the links as feathers, waves or even stylized serpent scales, it still remains a bracelet with extremely powerful presence and a considerable "wow" factor. Having an inner circumference of 6 5/8" (including the 1 1/8" gap), the cuff is 1 1/8" wide and weighs 58.4 grams. It is perfect for smaller to medium wrists and though it's a cuff, I wouldn't recommend trying to adjust it; it's made of heavier gauge silver sheet and any such effort might result in making the overlapping links come apart. Signed with the taller's early line signature and bearing des. no 263, it dates in the 1940s and is in excellent vintage condition with fantastic patina.
