This 100% Pure Silver & Black Oxidized Silver Kazaz Love Knot Bracelet is handcrafted by (1000 carat) 100% pure silver wire with traditional Turkish jewelry technique known as Kazaz. Kazazlık, (also known as “Kazaziye” or “Kazaz”), is one of the rare and rapidly disappearing handcrafts of Turkey.
Most silver jewelry is known as .925 sterling silver. This “925” number describes the purity of the silver. It means 92.5% silver and 7.5% of copper compound. You have to use this quotient to develop any kind of silver jewelry because of the suppleness of pure silver. However, jewelers have to work with 1000 grade 100% pure silver to process hand-crafted silver kazaz jewels. Working with such pure, soft silver requires a mastered artisan.
This beautiful, unique piece of 100% pure silver and 100% black oxidized pure silver bracelet measures 7.5″ in length and each Love Knot measures about 1.25″ wide. It is elegant enough for the most special occasions, but simple enough to wear every day.
