The Samara cuff is a thinner triangle banded cuff constructed of sterling silver with a 14k gold set 2mm diamond set into the top. This simple, yet slightly detailed and elegant cuff is a size 5.5. My mother asked me recently to make some pieces for her long time girlfriends whom she’s been close with since her high school years. I’ve come to know these amazing women as my “aunties”, and it was really fun to create for them depending on their personalities and vision I had of who they are. These cuffs ended up being created in the spirit of a couple of them, and I loved the cuffs so much that I decided to do a couple similar versions of them. Classy, fun, wise, and vivacious.
All Hillary West jewelry is handmade with personally cut stone for inlay, or carefully chosen stones from fellow lapidary artists, or local mines. Every piece is one of a kind, uses recycled metals, conflict free diamonds, and holds its own personal story. If a piece calls to you, I truly believe that it guided me in its creation, knowing what your spirit was looking for.
