Do you remember reading the New York Times (actual newspaper in your hands) and on the third page there was always a box with an ad for Bergdorf Goodman - I use to love seeing those ads. Here is one from 1989 I believe and it shows a new African inspired rose wenge wood cuff by Tina Chow. This is such an amazing photo - the model (does anyone recognize her?), the pose and of course, the two wood cuffs.
and so just to make it all that much more amazing, I am thrilled to have a wenge wood cuff for sale at RARE vintage! Ours does not have the turquoise inlay like the one in the ad - if someone has a cuff with the turquoise, please send me a photo!
|Circa 1989 Tina Chow wenge wood cuff available for purchase at RARE vintage|
You can see that Tina Chow carefully chose the wood for this extraordinary piece by its beautiful graining. Even though this piece is African inspired there is a refined elegance to it that is always a hall mark of her jewelry. It is not only an incredible statement piece to wear but a remarkable objet d'art...
love, kisses and so happy to have another beautiful and rare piece of Tina Chow, Juliana
