William Henry ZURICH RODEO
Limited Edition: 100 pieces
The Zurich ‘Rodeo’ is a beautiful money clip featuring a frame in hand-carved sterling silver, inlaid with ‘zinc-matrix’ Kingman turquoise, and a white topaz gem stone.
The clip is machined and polished from tempered stainless steel, with a beautiful engraving bright cut against the matte-finished background.
The ‘Rodeo’ money clip is a beautiful, and functional personality statement featuring some of the unique materials and forged metals that are the hallmark of William Henry’s collections; a timeless heirloom to be proudly worn and used for a lifetime before handing it down to another generation.
This piece features one of our hallmark materials.
These natural materials owe their patterns and distinctive color palette to the specific and often unique conditions in which they came to exist. Because of the fossilization process, soil composition and meteorology, these rare fossils, exotic woods, shells and rocks can show dramatic differences in color and pattern, making every piece a one-of-a-kind.
When you purchase a piece featuring our Unique Materials logo, the object you receive is indeed truly unique. It becomes a distinctive symbol of your own character, and an integral part of your living legacy; a rare and precious personality statement that will accompany you for a lifetime before being handed down to another generation.
Please note that for these reasons, when you buy a William Henry featuring one of our unique materials, the piece you receive may look different from the one shown on our website. A truly original one-of-a-kind.
CARVED STERLING SILVER
Carved Silver is done by hand with chisels and rotary tools. William Henry works with the finest silversmiths to create elaborate (and durable) carvings in sterling silver. In many cases, we use colored sapphires and other precious stones, set in 18K gold bezels, to further decorate these masterful carvings.
‘ZINC MATRIX’ TURQUOISE
The Kingman Turquoise Mine in Arizona is one of the oldest and highest producing Turquoise Mines in America. It was originally discovered by prehistoric Indians well over 1,000 years ago. Kingman Turquoise is known for its beautiful sky blue color and produces many variations of blue Turquoise.
Our Zinc-Matrix Turquoise is made with Kingman Turquoise infused with zinc, creating a striking contrast between the soft blues of the Turquoise and the shiny, contemporary look of the metal.
Topaz is a rare, extremely hard gemstone with an exceptionally wide color range that, besides brown, includes various tones and saturations of blue, green, yellow, orange, red, pink, and purple.
The ancient Greeks believed that topaz gave them strength. In Europe during the Renaissance (the period from the 1300s to the 1600s) people thought that topaz could break magic spells and dispel anger. For centuries, many people in India have believed that topaz worn above the heart assures long life, beauty, and intelligence.
