"Sonoran Sunrise" 1994 Arizona Casino Token and Cactus Sterling Silver Cuff

$ 307.00

This 1994 dated Gila River Casino token located in central Arizona has been carefully set into a wide-mouthed, pure sterling silver cuff. The quintessential Sonoran desert sunset scenery shown on the front side of the token is met on either side with two sterling silver saguaro cactuses that were forged by hand. The cuff features an open-back setting which reveals the backside of the token to the wearer. An absolute must-have statement piece for any southwestern sweetheart's wardrobe. 


Components discovered in Phoenix AZ



After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it is preserved and/or sealed to ensure its longevity and protection. Each and every item is made by hand by owners Nathan and Ali, therefore, some small imperfections or variations may be present in your design. To us, this only adds to the beauty and rarity of your particular piece. 1888 Design does not claim ownership over the design or production of any vintage, antique, or otherwise repurposed object used in the creation of our jewelry. 

Each 1888 Design piece contains unique elements of symbolic or historic value that mean something different to us all. Let's break down what the elements in this design are

Cactus

The mighty cactus is a powerful symbol of resilience, resourcefulness, and protection. Amazingly, some of these succulents can live up to 200 years old and can even go up to a year or two without water. They not only hold on to water deep within their flesh and roots, but also have the ability to collect tiny water molecules from the wind through their thorny spines. For anyone looking for the strength to not only survive in harsh conditions but be able to thrive within them, the cactus is a powerful totem to carry with you.

Casino Tokens

The first use of modern day casino tokens/chips was in 1965 in the Harrah’s Reno and Lake Tahoe casinos. The idea of the chips came about because of the rising price of silver, and a new solution had to be made to combat the use of the silver dollar in casinos. However, the ancestors to these plastic/clay-molded cheques were known as jetons, a colored counter used to keep score in French card games dating all the way back to the mid 1700s.

FAQ

Can I resize this item?

If a product page does not have a drop down option for size selections, or if the product description does not state a need for the customer to input their desired size in the notes section of their purchase, then we are NOT able to resize the item. Some exceptions can be made with chain lengths. Please reach out to us at inspire@1888design.com and we will try to accommodate as best we can.

Are your earrings hypoallergenic?

All earring posts are made out of sterling silver, stainless steel, or brass metals unless otherwise stated in the product description. Sterling silver and stainless steel are both hypoallergenic metals. Brass can react differently among different skin types, so we advise knowing your body's tolerance to brass prior to purchasing earrings with brass ear posts. Again, all metals used are stated in each product's description tab.
