The finest sterling silver from Peru is .950, meaning it is 95% pure silver. The sterling silver we usually see is .925, meaning it has less silver content. The extra silver content in .950 sterling makes it especially eye catching, and more valuable as well. The Peruvian bracelets, earrings and necklaces made with .950 sterling silver are remarkable pieces of artisan jewelry. The sterling in this Sterling Silver Flower Bracelet is hammered by hand to give it a three dimensional look and extra shine. The flower design is complemented by a sturdy sterling heart clasp, and an elegant black suede cord. Pieces like this are our favorite finds in the marketplace, because they are special pieces of Peruvian Jewelry that display the talent of Peruvian artisans.
