Constance Gildea | Oak Leaf Cuff

The result in this case is an amazinf piece of fine jewelry that can the cherished for years to come. Constance also uses a combination of champagne and cognac diamonds sprinkled into and craftfully set into the cuff to add a bit more subtle sparkle. The total carat weight of the stones on the cuff is 0.25.
