This romantic Austro-Hungarian Silver Garnet bracelet is an absolutely gorgeous thing! So to find it with its original partner, and equally seductive antique rose cut Garnet ring has us thrilled!
The bracelet consists of 8 ornate Silver panels, each set with a beautiful rose cut Garnet.
The ring has its own unique design which is quite different from the bracelet, but we can clearly see they were designed to be worn together- to complement rather than copy one another.
At the moment the Silver is quite dark with an aged patina, and this brings a lot of depth and contrast to the decorative links. We could polish it up to create a more "silvery" shine like that you'd get on a modern Silver bracelet, but we think the darkness suits the slightly gothic and romantic feel of the piece!
The Garnets are a lovely deep red colour, and the rose cut facets twinkle and catch the light as you move.
The bracelet and ring are made of solid 835 Silver and the bracelet is marked with the Austrian Hoopoe bird, indicating it was crafted in the town of Linz.
It's in superb condition and comes complete with the original Silver safety chain, so you can wear this gorgeous antique Silver rose cut Garnet bracelet without a worry.

VERY GOOD / EXCELLENT: This beautiful antique rose cut Garnet bracelet, and the matching antique Garnet ring are in superb condition. It's rare to see one let alone two pieces such as this, and to find them as a set is fantastic! There is no damage to any of the pretty Garnet gemstones and the clasp works perfectly. The Garnets are all well matched and the dark patina of the Silver brings added depth and contrast to the stylish pattern.
One "prong" or arm of an ornate piece of foliage is missing from one of the panels but this can only be noticed on close inspection, and then only if you are looking for imperfections. It doesn't in any way detract from the beauty of the piece, and the bracelet is structurally sound throughout. The bracelet comes complete with original Silver safety chain and ready to wear!
The ring is in perfect condition. Again with no chips or damage anywhere to be seen. There's no evidence of re-sizing and the Garnets in the ring and bracelet were clearly made to be seen together. All in all a wonderful, rare and collectable set of Austro-Hungarian Silver Jewellery.
