Asymmetrical Stiff Wrist Torque or Bangle from Western India probably Gujarat
Unique opening / closing mechanism that is an engineering feat!
The shape is not circular and the lobe has a larger radius on the outer side.
The shape resembles the Rising Sun and hence is loosely termed "Surya Kada"
Fastened with a screw.
HIgh Impact - conversation piece.
