Men's bracelet with original design. Very beautiful Tahitian pearl of beautiful size! Unique piece.

The Tahitian pearl mounted on the leather is also original in its color and shape.
The clasp is in silver metal, one part has a tube that is embedded in the other part of the clasp. A magnet enhances the security of the closure.
