This antique Victorian Garnet bangle is an absolute one-of-a-kind, glistening with glossy rose cut Garnets from every angle! The Garnet cluster has a beautiful floral motif at either end and is crowned with a huge 4.83ct Garnet cabochon at its heart!
The bangle is hinged so is easy to take on and off, and looks just as great with an evening dress or worn with a casual tee and a pair of jeans.
For those of you who love a vampy Gothic look, you'll adore their deep red wine colour and mysterious depths!

VERY GOOD: A stunning antique Victorian Garnet bangle is in beautiful condition for its age. Despite being well over 100 years old the bangle is sturdy with well-set gems and a good, strong clasp that clicks shut tight. Some of the Garnets have a little light wear commensurate with age, most notably a few small scratches to the side of the Garnet cabochon, but on the whole are in excellent shape and in no way dims the beauty of this gorgeous piece!
There are no missing gems, no chips and they all appear to be original. We just can't get enough of their gorgeous glistening red facets!
