1950s Napier cuff with faux carnelian-cabochons

Armed: The Napier Cuff

Cuffs were always an import part of the Napier line for decades. This cuff features faux carnelian cabochons surmounted on a smooth polished gold surface—c. 1950s. It can be hard to circa date cuffs as the shape was often repeated from one decade to the next. Textures, stone shapes, plating shades play a factor in evaluating the Napier cuff.  From The Napier Book https://ift.tt/3cnbS9h
