Julalita Lamy is typically mentioned, though her lovely versions are usually distinguished by the use of silver drops with parallel striations. The offered example is appropriately well accomplished though with star form silver drops, a crafting detail that instead supports a making by Bowman Paywa. Bowman apparently favored star form drops, while Julalita (usually) went with the striated format. As such nuances are not an area of expertise for me, please let me know if I have misinterpreted anything here. That said and whatever your personal opinion, the overall design and inlays (showing good evidence of their hand accomplished lapidary work) provide plenty of visual charisma for anyone who favors obvious quality and the road less traveled.Weight is very good for the form at about 6.3 grams on my portable digital scale. There appears to be some trader coding faintly engraved to the back, though I cannot make it out. Condition is quite fine, with nicely toned silver surfaces and "the look" you require. Inlays are all very nice.
The trader supplied pin and locking clasp are good to go. A look at the pics should give a good idea of appearance and condition. Size is about 1 3/4 in. Vertical and 1 1/16 in. Horizontal - and yes, it will definitely be noticed.I don't know what else to say, so there you are. THIS IS LISTED AS U.
