Understated and elegant, this bracelet provides the cool and confident look of turquoise without the hefty price. Three strands of blue-dyed magnesite make up the bracelet. Finished with a silver colored sliding clasp, it provides a trendy, stacked look. The beads measure 8mm, 6mm and 4mm. The total length is about 7 1/4″, creating a comfortably close fit for an average sized wrist.
Magnesite is a gemstone that, when cut and polished into beads, features a dark thread of veins across its surface, giving it texture and interest. It is often dyed blue to act as a less-expensive alternative to turquoise, which it resembles. These beads are also marketed as Tibetan turquoise.
